Ex-England, Man City boss Eriksson takes Al-Nasr job

Sven-Goran Eriksson has been appointed as the new technical director of UAE Pro-League club Al-Nasr.

The former England, Manchester City, Mexico and Lazio boss has turned down a role on the coaching staff at German club 1860 Munich to join the Dubai-based outfit on an 18-month agreement.

"It's a long-term job. If you want to change things in football it's not done overnight," Eriksson said.

"You need time in football and I've just started this job these past two days, watched training with the youth teams, the senior team and the reserve team. But everything seems good. The conditions - the nice stadium, the nice training ground, good dressing rooms - everything is in place here."

Al-Nasr is currently managed by former Inter Milan and Italy goalkeeper Walter Zenga and currently sits fifth on the Pro-League table.
