Sven-Goran Eriksson to go...but not yet

So Sven is to go but not until after the world cup. Oh and probably with a payoff of £5m.


I realise I am probably in a minority on this one but the in my opinion he should have been sacked

Not because of all his affairs - that is his business

Not because he was gullible enough to be conned by the papers

Not because he alleges there is corruption in the game - he is probably right

Not because he wants to discuss future employment prospects

But because (and this is a point which seems to have been missed by most of the media) he was prepared to approach Beckham and persuade him to return to english football. As far as I know Beckham is under contract to Real Madrid and an approach like this is known as "tapping up". That is why he should have been sacked...and no compensation either!
