County chief tips Sven to stay

The Swedish football association (SvFF) on Monday admitted they had made contact with Eriksson over the weekend regarding the coaching position vacated by Lagerback after he failed to guide the team to next summer's World Cup finals.

Jonas Nystedt, head of communications at the organisation, said Eriksson was part of a shortlist of "five to 10 names" which also includes Fulham manager Roy Hodgson amongst others.

Trembling though insists the League Two club have not heard from the Swedes and reiterated his belief Eriksson will remain as director of football at Meadow Lane.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: "We have heard nothing from the Swedish FA so I am not sure how much of it is conjecture.

"He is contracted to us at the moment. We said to Sven when he joined us were not going to stand in his ways should a dream job come up. If Sven is desperate to manage his home country I certainly wouldn't stand in his way. Having spoken to him about this I'd be very surprised if he was interested at this juncture of his career."
