Man City chairman Thaksin wants better from Eriksson

Manchester City chairman Thaksin Shinawatra has hinted manager Sven Goran Eriksson must recapture their early season form if he's to keep his job.

"I felt very optimistic after I got Sven-Goran Eriksson as coach," he said.

"We also got some new players and even though it was quite heavy on my pocket, I was very confident the club would be moving forward.

"At the start of the season we were playing exciting football and making new friends. I like that style and the way Sven was training them, the way the team came together and the way they played football."
