Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra has stated that he will evaluate Sven Goran Eriksson’s position at the end of the season.
Reports over the weekend claimed that the City owner and chairman ws losing confidence in Eriksson following the team’s poor run of results.
It was also suggested that Shinawatra was lining up Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari as a possible replacement.
Asked by reporters in Dubai whether Eriksson’s job was in jeopardy, the former Thai prime minister said: “There are no plans at the moment.
“We will have to evaluate at the end of the season.
“I’m not happy with the performance of the club in the second half of the season.
“We will look at it at the end of the season and assess the club and the people involved.”
Shinawatra also wants to strengthen the City squad over the summer, adding: “We’ll probably have to sell some players and buy some new ones.
“We need some defenders and midfielders. Midfielders are the key. We have some good players but we need more.”
