Eriksson hoping to hear from Aston Villa

Former Manchester City and England boss Sven Goran Eriksson is yet to hear from Aston Villa about the vacant manager's job.

Eriksson was linked with the position in 2006 after leaving England before O'Neill was appointed, and made no secret of his desire to make a return to management.

However he claimed he had heard nothing from the Midlands club, who may turn to caretaker Kevin MacDonald after an emphatic 3-0 victory over West Ham in their opening game of the season.

"I have had no contact with them," said Eriksson.

"I want to get back into football. It's a big club, everybody knows that, but I've had no contact. We'll see what happens.

"There are so many available managers around Europe and around the world, I'm not the only one (not contacted). And they did very well yesterday so they might not do anything."
