Sven-Goran Eriksson turns down 1860 Munich job

BY foxsports • January 18, 2013

Former England and Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has turned down an offer to join the staff of the German second-division club 1860 Munich.

The team says Eriksson declined the job after considering the offer for some time and after talks in London with Munich managing director Robert Schaefer.

Munich announced three days earlier that it was seeking to hire Eriksson. He was the choice of Munich's Jordanian investor Hasan Ismaik, who had threatened to stop funding the club if Eriksson was not accepted by the management.
