Sven-Goran Eriksson Back In Management At Leicester City

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 04 October 2010, 08:11

Sven-Goran Eriksson is once again back in England and in Management after being appointed the new Manager of Leicester City, Paulo Sousa was sacked on Friday and the club have reacted quickly by appointing the former England Manager on a two-year contract. It is a big name appointment for The Foxes and the Swede will be expected to take the team back into the Premier League in the near future, Sousa struggled through the early part of the season and was given his marching orders after just nine games in charge at the Walkers Stadium. Eriksson will need get the team off to a quick start as he looks to take them up the table, with promotion this season still the aim for the team this season despite a sluggish start.

Eriksson has an impressive CV to his name but has enjoyed mixed success since leaving the England job in 2006, he had an ill-fated spell at Notts County as well as a tough spell as the Mexico Boss that ended in the sack so he is keen to rebuild his reputation at Leicester. We last saw Sven at the World Cup where he was in charge of the Ivory Coast team that failed to get past the group stages of the tournament, he left his short-term deal after the World Cup and has been looking for a new job to sink his teeth into and he appears to have found that in the midlands with the Foxes.

Sven though will have a tough task on his hands at Leicester with the Championship looking tougher than ver with several teams all fighting for those all important promotion and play-off places, and after a poor start to the season the team will need to go on an impressive streak if they are to find themselves in contention in the New Year. Eriksson is the seventh Manager at Leicester since Milan Mandaric became Chairman back in 2007 so he is not afraid to make the changes he feel will benefit the club, that is perhaps even more so the case now with the club being taken over by a Thai Consortium recently.

Eriksson will be expected to turn the clubs fortunes around pretty quickly while the fans will also be expecting a positive reaction from the players after the International break, either way the Walkers Stadium will be one to keep an eye on this season because one thing that the Sack Race has learnt over the years is that with Sven around things are never dull.
