Eriksson admits Man City caught out by winter market

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits they were caught out by the winter transfer window.

"It is good that the winter window exists but I didn't know it would be that difficult to find players," confessed Eriksson.

"It has been extremely difficult. We have been on about ten cases during January and you think you are almost there and there comes a 'no' from a club. I'm happy the window closed and the telephone stopped ringing.

"Next season I will approach things differently but hopefully we will not need that much in the way of players next January. We hope to do what we need next summer."
