Man City boss Eriksson in Benfica talks

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is in talks with Benfica, it has been revealed.

BBC Sport says Eriksson has been told he will be sacked at the end of the season and Luiz Felipe Scolari has been approached as a replacement.

The Swedish coach's agent Athole Still was unavailable for comment late on Wednesday.

Benfica spokesman Ricardo Maia said: "Whether someone is or is not in Manchester to try to persuade Eriksson, we have nothing to say about it."

Eriksson has coached Benfica twice, leading the Lisbon club to two championships and a domestic cup in the early 1980s.
