Sven-Goran Eriksson jokes about managing again and is open to the idea.

Sven-Goran Eriksson admits the Liverpool job may be a little out of his reach but isn’t ruling out a return to football management.

Since a brief three-month stint in charge of the Philippines between 2018 and 2019, Eriksson, 74, has been out of the game. However, the flame is still burning bright for a man who started his coaching career in 1977 with Swedish minnows Degerofs, some 24 years before he was hired as England’s manager.

The endearing Swede suffered a string of narrow defeats while playing for the Three Lions, exiting the 2002 World Cup, 2004 European Championship, and 2006 World Cup quarterfinals.

The hardest part of managing England, according to Sven-Goran Eriksson, is not WAGs.

Eriksson hasn’t quite given up on managing yet in a career that has included stops at clubs like Lazio, Benfica, Manchester City, three Chinese Super League clubs, in addition to various other places.

Eriksson admits in an exclusive interview with Daily Star Sport that he might be tempted to return to management, but he doesn’t anticipate Liverpool hiring him anytime soon.
