Eriksson backed to take Man City into top ten

Former Manchester City shareholder John Ryan believes Sven Goran Eriksson can lift the club inside the top ten next season.

Ryan is convinced the good times are just around the corner at Eastlands now the Swede is in charge.

The Doncaster chairman saw his team lose 3-1 to City in a friendly on Saturday, Eriksson's first match in charge.

Ryan said: "I feel under Sven they are in for a great season.

"I think they will finish comfortably in the top half of the Premier League.

"That will pave the way for a major challenge the season after for honours and Europe.

"The city of Manchester needs two top clubs."
