Man City boss Eriksson: I was interested in Blackburn's Santa Cruz

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits he was interested in Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz over the summer.

"Santa Cruz was on my radar but I was just a bit too late," said Eriksson.

"I saw him many times for Bayern Munich - and for Paraguay. It is no surprise to me how well he has done in the Premier League because he is a very good player.

"He did well against Chelsea and when you look at the game overall, Blackburn were very unlucky to lose, so we know how tough it is going to be for us tomorrow."
