Ex-England boss Eriksson takes Al Hilal job

Former England and Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson will be appointed as the new manager of Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal.

The Swede was hoping for a job in England after his recent stint with the Ivory Coast finished but has reportedly come to an agreement to join the Saudi club on a £1.2million one-year deal.

Eriksson will replace Belgian manager Eric Gerets as soon as Al Hilal's Asian Champions League campaign is over.
