Three-man shortlist for Portsmouth job

New Portsmouth owner Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim has a three-man managerial shortlist.

The Mirror says Fratton Park's new owner, named the world's 16th richest Arab, believes Sven Goran Eriksson will attract the names that can make last season's FA Cup winners a Premier League force again.
