Man City boss Eriksson: Nobody likes me. I don't care

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has revealed none of his rival Premiership managers have sent him best wishes for the new season.

Asked if he had received any messages from fellow bosses to welcome him back into the Premier League fold, Eriksson said: "No, none. I don't know if that makes me an outsider. I don't think so.

"Many of them I know very, very well.

"But I don't think in football today you phone around if there's a new manager.

"And am I new or not? I don't know if I am new.

"I went to see the managers for almost six years. When you meet them you say 'hello' and so on."
