Why Sven-Goran Eriksson’s appointment of Hans Backe is hardly surprising
Notts County’s new manager is predictable
Notts County have appointed Sven Goran Eriksson’s former Manchester City assistant Hans Backe as their new manager. Ex-boss Ian McParland never really stood a chance in the post, and it was only a matter of time before Eriksson took over the managerial power.
Rather than taking on the manager’s post himself, Sven has installed a puppet in the hot-seat. No doubt if the new man tries to make too many decisions by himself he will find his Hans tied behind his Backe. Ho, ho, ho!
