SWEDISH chiefs have sounded out former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson and Fulham manager Roy Hodgson about becoming national coach.<br /><br />Eriksson, now director of football at Notts County, is the frontrunner and the country’s governing body the SvFF hope to make an appointment before the middle of next month.<br /><br />However, Cottagers chief Hodgson, who enjoyed successful spells in charge of Malmo and Halmstads earlier in his career, is also in the frame.<br /><br />Sweden are looking for fresh impetus after the departing Lars Lagerback failed to steer them to next summer’s World Cup, and the SvFF have already begun their search.“There is a special list of five to 10 names and Sven-Goran Eriksson is on that list,” said SvFFspokesman Jonas Nystedt. <br /><br />“What the Swedish FA did over the weekend was to contact a lot of these people. We asked them what their situation was and whether they were interested in the job. Roy Hodgson is also part of the Swedish football family. I think he is on the list.”<br /><br />Eriksson only began a five-year contract with the ambitious League Two outfit in the summer, but could seek to take on a dual role. “That is one decision that they will have to take,” added Nystedt.
