Eriksson won't walk away from Man City

Sven Goran Eriksson has vowed to finish what he has started at Manchester City despite claims that his position could be in doubt at the end of the season.

City owner Thaksin Shinawatra admitted on Wednesday that he was unhappy with the club's form since the turn of the year and also explained how he would assess Eriksson's position after the final game of the campaign.

Despite the fact that the former England manager has led City to their highest ever points tally in the Premier League era, he has been forced to deal with reports linking Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari with his job in recent days.

"These kinds of stories do not annoy me," Eriksson told the Manchester Evening News. "When you live in football you also live with rumours.

"I have a contract for two more seasons and that is it. I am here to complete what I started.

"I can understand people not being happy with the second half of the season. I have not been happy with it either but after winning at Sunderland I hope we are back now and everything should be on track."
