Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has admitted that he would “love” to manage Premier League side Liverpool.

The Swede was sacked by Shenzhen FC in June and before that also managed Guangzhou R&F and Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese Super League.

Eriksson has previously won league titles in Sweden, Italy and Portugal, while he had managerial stints in England with Manchester City and Leicester City.

And the 69-year-old has revealed that his ideal job now he is unemployed would be taking over his childhood team.

“I would love to manage Liverpool,” Eriksson told Ball Street.

“I’m an old, old Liverpool fan. I always have been, as has my father.”

Eriksson managed England from 2001 to 2006 and has hailed English players as “easy to manage”.

“English players are not difficult to manage, to have in training,” he added.

“They want to play football, love to play football and they are disciplined. I think it’s from the clubs.

“I had much more difficult players when I was in Italy. A big difference.

“I didn’t have any problem with England. Of course you bench one of them and they expected to play. But it’s easy to manage English players.”
