Sven snubs Blackburn job links

Sven-Goran Eriksson insists he's not interested in the Blackburn job, or any other vacancy, and would be happy to extend his stay at Leicester.

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."
