England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has dismissed media calls for him to resign after the Football Association admitted he had an affair with an FA secretary.
Eriksson’s affair led to the 56-year-old Swede splitting with long-term Italian girlfriend Nancy Dell’Olio and led to calls for him to quit.
“He is very committed to the job and is looking very much forward to leading England into the 2006 World Cup qualifying,” Eriksson’s agent Athole Still told the Daily Mirror.
“There is absolutely no question of him leaving his job over this.”
Eriksson has warned in the past that he would walk out if more revelations were exposed about his personal life.
The latest saga in his convoluted love life has embarrassed the FA, which had initially refuted the allegations, only to be forced into a humiliating u-when it emerged that Faria Alam not only had an affair with Eriksson but also with chief executive Mark Palios.
