Was Eriksson Tricked or Not?

Was Eriksson Tricked or Not?

England’s Soccer Team Coach Sven-Goran Eriksson, was caught making controversial revelations to an undercover journalist from the News of the World.

During this “interview”, Eriksson affirmed that in case England won the Soccer World Cup 2006, he would quit his job and find a new one managing the Aston Villa if they were taken over by a rich benefactor, even though he has a contract valid thru the year 2008.

As if that wasn’t enough, he also mentioned some names as David Beckham who according to Eriksson would return to play in the Premiership if he asked him to. The soccer coach also brought up that striker Michael Owen was unhappy at Newcastle, defender Rio Ferdinand was lazy and striker Wayne Rooney could have been a boxer like his father.

Two senior sources connected to the Football Association declared that if the revelations had emerged after the Soccer World Cup instead of before, the reaction would have been different.

Instead, Eriksson was asked to issue a statement and personally telephone the players involved.

Eriksson claims he has “no problem” with his soccer star players and insists he has not embarrassed them but his assistant Tord Grip admitted the expose had come as a shock to his fellow Swede.
