Sven declines Swedish job

The Swede who is director of football at Notts County felt he could combine his position at the club and the coaching job of the Swedish national team. The Swedish football association was on board with the proposal. But Notts County executive chairman Peter Trembling felt that Eriksson could not have his cake and eat it too.
“We wouldn’t allow him to do both jobs – this is a full time job at Notts County,” Trembling said on Monday.
The Magpies once promising start has hit foul weather. Some high profile signings have not panned out with Sol Campbell’s farcical departure and Roberto Carlos yet to land. They have had a series of insipid draws and losses which have pushed them back to fifth in the league table and they are yet to find a successor to Ian McParland who was sacked on October 12th.
McParland’s departure has proved highly unpopular with Lee Hughes being particularly vocal about it. And Notts County is subject to endless media speculation as to ownership control with Anwar Shafi denying he has any role even after the club named him as an investor.
Given these difficult set of circumstances, Peter Trembing probably feels that Eriksson would be distracted with the Sweden job and be less inclined to address the club’s pressing concerns.
