Notts County have confirmed the surprise appointment of Sven Goran Eriksson’s as the club’s new director of football.

Eriksson, whose most recent job was as coach of Mexico, has been lured to Meadow Lane by a Middle East-backed consortium that has taken over at the club.

Former England, Mexico and Manchester City boss Eriksson will be assisted by Tord Grip, who will take up the position of general advisor at the League Two club.

Eriksson told the club’s official website: “I am particularly attracted to this role and the unique opportunity to help build a club over the longer-term.

“I will be responsible for all aspects of the football side of the club and in line with the aspirations of the new owners, wish to build the club at the heart of the community.

“I started my football management career at a small lower division Swedish club and we managed to get them into the top-flight.

“I can think of no better challenge than to attempt to do that again, but this time with the world’s oldest football club, where we can add to a proud tradition and hopefully bring some richly deserved success.

“We hope to leave a long lasting football legacy for Notts County FC and its fans.”

Chairman Peter Trembling added: “Last week, I began to outline our vision for the club. Our emphasis is to improve all areas of the football club, both on and off the field, and to secure long-term success.

“One key element to our future success will be our ability to attract outstanding talent to work with us in all areas of the club.

“Today we have taken the first major step in building our team of experienced and committed people by appointing Sven and Tord.

“Sven and his team join us with an unrivalled football pedigree. Their knowledge of the game and contacts throughout the football world will significantly enhance Notts County’s prospects.

“Sven shares our vision, and to attract someone of his calibre is testament to the ambition that we all share for Notts County. This is a great day for everyone associated with the club.”
