Sven appointed Mexico boss

Sven-Goran Eriksson has been appointed as the new coach of Mexico.

"It's unanimous. Eriksson has been accepted," said Guadalajara president and member of the Mexican federation's executive committee Jorge Vergara.

No real surprise here given the reports at the end of last week that there was an offer on the table for Sven, and it was a merely a case of Sven hanging on for the axe to ensure he picked up the full compensation figure that will no doubt come his way.

Sven did say that the year out between the England job and being appointed at City was the longest of his life, so no shock that he has got straight back into management, but a little puzzling that it is back into international football given the way he missed the day to day aspect of club football during his England tenure?
