Former Manchester City assistant boss Hans Backe has emerged as the favourite to replace Ian McParland as Notts County's manager. The 57-year-old told Swedish reporters on Monday that he was expecting to hold talks with the League Two side about the vacancy. Backe was the current Magpies' director of football Sven-Goran Eriksson's assistant at Eastlands and the duo also worked together in Mexico. Backe won four Danish titles with FC Copenhagen and Aalborg and also has experience with Panathinaikos and Salzburg.
