It could have been an emotional reunion,but Sven-Goran Eriksson will not be reunited with David Beckham at Leicester City.
The former England boss has been asked to bag a big-name signing by the Leicester owners but, despite his best efforts, he couldn’t land the prize catch of LA Galaxy megastar Beckham – according to The Sun.
“The owners want a big signing. Of course I would take Beckham. I spoke to his agent to see if there was a small chance but he said it wasn’t possible,” Eriksson is quoted as saying in the paper.
“It’s difficult when you talk about players at that level. Most don’t really want to come to our league.” (Yahoo Eurosport)
Well there’s a surprise.
Expect there to be a great deal of speculation about where the LA Galaxy midfielder finds himself playing if indeed he does look for another loan deal before he completes his final year of his MLS contract next season.
