City hopeful targets Sven

17 Jun 2007 - 12:27:45

Manchester City will turn to Sven Goran-Eriksson should Thaksin Shinawatra's £100million takeover of the club be completed, according to reports.

Eriksson has been out of work since leaving his post as England head coach in the aftermath of last summer's World Cup.

However, should Shinawatra complete his protracted buyout of the Citizens, then his number one target is now the experienced Swede.

Shinawatra has already seen two names on his shortlist - Claudio Ranieri and Juande Ramos - pledge their futures to other clubs as his takeover bid continues to be plagued by problems.

The former prime minister has also seen over £1billion worth of assets frozen in his native Thailand.

Meanwhile, former Citizens boss Stuart Pearce has admitted he is interested in taking the England Under-21 job on a full-time basis.

Pearce's contract with the national team expires after the current European Championship, but the former England international is keen to remain in charge.

"I would seriously think about doing it," he said.

"I find it a great honour to work for England, always have done and probably always will do.

"It gives me great pride to work within the FA. It's how you feel inside with your personal pride. For me it means a great deal."
