Man City boss Eriksson: Schmeichel a great surprise

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits Kasper Schemichel has been a pleasant surprise this season.

Eriksson told City's website: "He's been a big surprise for all of us and the fans as well, and we've been very happy with him. There was a lot of talk about bringing in another keeper when Isaksson got injured but so far we have not done anything because we think we have three good goalkeepers when Andreas (Isaksson) comes back.

"If we want to do something with getting a goalkeeper in, he must be much, much better than the three we have, and where do we find one like that? So far, there's nothing and maybe nothing may happen even in January.

"We have some good goalkeepers, and the great thing is that they are all young, including Andreas. Two play Under 21 international football and Isaksson is only 25 or so, even though it feels like he has been around for a long time."
