Sven Goran Eriksson says he's at Notts County for the long haul.

Former England boss Eriksson wants to be taking on Manchester United and Chelsea within five years – and is already aiming way beyond that.

County’s director of football told the Sunday Mirror: “When we are in the Premier League, the dream will be then to play in the Champions League – and then to win that. It is human nature.

“It is of course easy to sit and talk about it but it’s very difficult to achieve.

“The dream now is to play in League One next season, then you take it higher and higher. But it’s very clear you don’t win the Champions League or Premier League without money.

“So the finance is very important if we are to do what we set out to do. This is a beautiful project and I am totally committed.”
