No Fulham contact with Sven


Sven-Goran Eriksson has emerged as the favourite to succeed Roy Hodgson as Fulham's boss after Martin Jol turned down the opportunity to take over the managerial reins at Craven Cottage.

However, the former England manager's agent, Athole Still, has revealed that the Cottagers have not contacted his client.

When asked if Eriksson was interested in the Fulham job, Still told Radio Five Live:"It's a very attractive club, not just for Sven-Goran Eriksson.

"(However, there has been) no contact whatsoever. We've known for several weeks that Sven was one of the managers under consideration for the job.

"(But there has been) no interview, no discussion whatsoever.

"Of course he has unfinished business there (the Premier League). He was in my view outrageously sacked from his position (at Manchester City).

"He did a first-class job with them – it was a personal non-compatability with Dr Shinawatra which caused him to be sacked. He should still be there."
