First Harry Redknapp, then Tony Adams. Portsmouth are searching for the third manager of the season, but will there be an announcement today?
The Guardian reports that none other than Sven-Goran Eriksson could be about to arrive at Fratton Park and get Pompey ‘playing up’ again. The Swede is the current head coach of Mexico, although it is thought that he could be axed by the South American nation after failing to steer them to the 2010 World Cup.
Portsmouth hope to hear from Sven-Goran Eriksson today about his thoughts on taking over at Fratton Park as the replacement for Tony Adams.
However, according to a friend of Eriksson, the 61-year-old would not necessarily take the position at Portsmouth if he loses his job with Mexico. “Even if he gets the sack Sven is not completely sure about becoming the manager at Portsmouth. His mind is not made up.”
Would Portsmouth fans jump at the chance to see Eriksson in the manager’s hotseat at Portsmouth, or were they distinctly unimpressed by last season’s effort with Manchester City? The Swede is known for his love of cold hard cash, so perhaps the club would find it difficult to offer him the lucrative contract that the former England manager would hanker for.
