Portsmouth chairman Storrie rubbishes Eriksson rumours

Portsmouth chairman Peter Storrie has rubbished all rumours linking former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson with the club.

Reports have suggested that Pompey have made contact with the Swede but Storrie was quick to erase those claims.

"It's a complete nonsense," Storrie told The News.

"No discussions have gone on about a new manager coming in whatsoever. Everything is staying as it is.

"The football manager remains the same and we move forward until such time as the new owner comes in. At that stage decisions will be made at all levels of the business.

"I don't see great changes at this time, but obviously that is a decision for them at that moment.

"The suggestion that we are in discussions with Sven-Goran Eriksson and other things I think comes from agents.

"That's who I would be looking at. They are the ones putting people's names about. It has certainly not come from us or Dr Sulaiman."
