Sven-Göran Eriksson Denies Scotland Link, Has ‘Never Even Thought’ of Applying

Ex-England boss Sven-Göran Eriksson has ‘never even thought about’ applying for the vacant Scotland manager’s job, despite reports to the contrary.

The former Leicester and Manchester City coach was reportedly being considered as a replacement for Alex McLeish, with various tabloids reporting he had even applied for the position.

However, that appears to be wide of the mark, after the 71-year-old was quizzed on the rumours this evening.

According to BBC Scotland, Eriksson said when asked about potentially succeeding McLeish: “I don’t know, I have never even thought about it.”

Eriksson was once one of European football’s most sought-after managers, having guided Benfica to the European Cup Final in 1990, as well as winning Serie A with Lazio in 2000.

Moreover, he came tantalisingly close to succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United boss at the turn of the century, but his latest roles have been less glamorous, with a stint as Philippines boss ending disappointingly in February.
