The Guardian reckons that Man City’s Sven Goran Eriksson could be shunted towards the exit door because his results simply aren’t good enough. This whole season has been one of ‘transition’ according to Man City apologists who claim it would be unfair to give Sven too much flak this season. Owner Shinawatra obviously thinks very differently; indeed, his team’s recent results have been so offensive to him that he is ready to tear up Svennis contract and boot him out of the nearest window.
The Guardian’s twin journalistic pillars Duncan Castles and Martin Palmer write that:
“City owner Thaksin Shinawatra is understood to have been upset by Eriksson’s failure to replicate the positive results of his early months at Eastlands and his handling of the squad. If he is replaced, City’s first choice as replacement is believed to be Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, who will become available after his country’s Euro 2008 campaign is over.”
Will Big Phil be able to come up with the goods?
