Beware ladies of Nottingham: Svennis is coming
OTP did give you the heads-up on this one yesterday, but I don’t think we expected the rumour to become reality. And yet Sven Goran Eriksson has been appointed at Notts County in a director of football post. Long-term ally Tord Grip also joins the Magpies’ payroll.
So to clarify: former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson has taken on a job at League Two side Notts County. Mind-boggling stuff.
See what Svennis has to say on the matter after the jump.
He said: “I am particularly attracted to this role and the unique opportunity to help build a club over the longer term.”
To be fair, Sven, your attractions have got you into trouble in the past and we suspect that this might be the case again on this occasion.
He added: “I can think of no better challenge than to attempt to do that again but this time with the world’s oldest football club, where we can add to a proud tradition and hopefully bring some richly deserved success.”
Maybe for their next appointment Notts County could consider a press officer who can recognise that “richly deserved success” is not a phrase that sounds like it rolled off Sven’s tongue!
Any thoughts, OTP readers?
