Eriksson opens Man City door to Chelsea's Wright-Phillips

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson would love to bring Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips back to Eastlands.

Wright-Phillips was left out of the 2006 World Cup squad by Eriksson after a lack of match action at Chelsea and the winger's father Ian Wright was an outspoken critic of the Swede during his England reign.

The player did not even make the bench for Wednesday's Champions League game against Schalke, sparking interest from potential buyers.

"If Shaun Wright-Phillips wants to come back, I would open the gate personally for him tomorrow," said Eriksson, who has been promised more transfer cash in January by club owner Thaksin Shinawatra.
