Sven_12The fascination with Sven Goran Eriksson‘s next managerial job has taken a twist after he was linked with the Nigeria national team job. Assistant Tord Grip let slip on Swedish radio that Sven had been in talks with the Nigerian FA.

Talking about a meeting 10 days ago, Grip said: "I don’t know exactly what those discussions were about. I assume they were about the Nigerian national team." Stick them on the list with Real Madrid, Aston Villa, Newcastle, West Ham, Inter Milan, Benfica and the rest!
