Eriksson commits to Man City long-term

Sven Goran Eriksson has assured Manchester City fans he's at Eastlands for the long haul.

Eriksson said: "I'm not saying that I want a new contract but of course I can see myself staying a long time. I like it here very much - apart from the weather.

"I like it because it's a project. It's something that we all want to do well together in. I'm in the Premier League, I'm at a big club. I am very happy here.

"Will I need more than two years to bring success? That could happen but we still have two years to go."

Eriksson has won plenty during his managerial career, including titles with Italian side Lazio and Portuguese outfit Benfica.

He added: "Winning trophies in football is one of the best things you can do. If trophies come here it would be even better than to win with Benfica.

"It would give me great satisfaction because we know we are working with a club that hasn't won anything for a very long time.

"If you can win with a club like that it is worth more than at a club like Benfica, who are supposed to win trophies every year."
