Former England manager heavily linked with League One club

2018-03-14 20:45:08

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has emerged as one of the top candidates for the vacant manager’s job at League One club Oxford United .

The odds on the Swede taking over the U’s were slashed by Skybet today from 16/1 to 3/1, making him third favourite for the job.

Charlton manager Karl Robinson is the favourite ahead of Oxford’s current caretaker manager Derek Fazackerley.

Eriksson has a large CV and is best known for coaching the England national team between 2001 and 2006, but he could only guide the so-called ‘Golden Generation’ to quarter-final spots in the 2002 and 2006 World Cups and in Euro 2004.

The 70-year-old has most recently managed Chinese club Shenzen FC from December 2016-June 2017.

Oxford United issued a statement yesterday saying a manager with the ‘wow factor’ had been identified, but there would not be any announcement until next week.
