Sven snubs Blackburn job links

The Swede, who signed a two-year deal with the Championship club in

October, has been linked with the vacant managerial post at Ewood

Park following Sam Allardyce’s departure. Eriksson, who has worked

in the Premier League with Manchester City, wants to manage in the

top flight again but believes he can achieve his ambition with the

Foxes. “Everyone wants to get into the Premier League, but I think

we can do that with Leicester,” Eriksson told the Leicester

Mercury. “I am happy here and I am not interested in any other

jobs. “I can sign tomorrow for three, four or five years if the

owners want. But I am sure they want to see what is happening this

season and next season – and that’s fair. What the owner wants in

that time is the Premier League.”
