Leicester boss Eriksson dismisses sack rumours

Leicester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has shrugged off claims his job is in jeopardy.

Former Manchester City manager Eriksson admits he had expected the first six Championship games to yield more than eight points but denied he felt under scrutiny from the Foxes hierarchy.

"I have not seen the reports but I have been told and I am not surprised," he told the Leicester Mercury.

"This is football. I am not worried about it. Everything is okay.

"The board have not said anything about that at all, and you go on working and everything is looking forward to the big game on Saturday. That is all that I can do about it.

"We try to as much as possible to shield (the players) from the pressure, but perhaps some of them have felt it a little bit."
