Sven Goran Eriksson has admitted he would be interested in taking charge at Manchester City.
The former England coach, who denied he was interested in the vacancy earlier in the week, has now admitted he would be honoured to manage City.
“City is a big, big club with unbelievable support. It would be an honour for me to be manager, like it would be for all other managers,” Eriksson told the Manchester Evening News.
“Every time I visited the club as England coach I was struck by the passion of the fans and was made to feel welcome and at home by nice people.
“They have a beautiful stadium and the possibility of a new owner and of course I would talk to them if they indicate they are interested in me becoming coach.
“City is an established Premiership club with great potential and I know they have ambitions to be challenging higher up the table.”
Eriksson also tried to clear clarify the remarks he made in an interview with Inside Sport in which he appeared to belittle City.
“I was asked if I’d had talks with City and I said ‘no’ but a break in the programme and a different question made it appear I had said something different,” added Eriksson.
