In a move to rival E.L. James’ 50 Shades of Grey – former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson is to pen his autiobiography.
The managerial mercenary,whose off-pitch relationships with partner Nancy Dell’Olio, TV celeb Ulrika Jonsson and FA secretary Faria Alam earned him more press than his tenure as England boss will publish the ‘no holds barred’ gossip-fest on October 16 – the day after England’s last World Cup qualifier against Poland.
Eriksson’s extra-time tryst with Alam caused a meltdown at English football’s ruling body as she was also horizontal dancing with then FA Chief executive Mark Palios.
Not stuck for a few bob the man who earned £4m a year with the FA but revealed to the News of the World’s fake sheikh he’s quit for a better offer will call his new tome ‘Svennis’. He said, without a hint of irony:
There has been so much said about me that is not true. Now I want to take the opportunity to give my own view of everything that has happened. I want it to be an open and honest book about life on and off the field.
The Swede has had more clubs that Rory McIlroy since leaving the English job and despite commanding a king’s ransom in salaries has seen his Manchester City, Mexico, Notts County, Leicester City, Ivory Coast, Thai club Tero Sasana and Al Nasr in Dubai – all underperform during his tutelage.
With some tasty managerial jobs up for grabs and impressionable chairmen with more money than sense – Sven could find himself back in Britain for the 2013/14 season.
