Swedish trip for Man City as Eriksson takes over

New Manchester City boss Sven-Göran Eriksson is taking his squad to his native Sweden to get their pre-season training underway.

They will travel to Sweden next week and play two games against Örgryte on July 18th and against Carlstad United three days later, the club said on its official website.

Eriksson was named as Manchester City coach last Friday after spending one year on the sidelines in the wake of England’s failed World Cup campaign. He is on a three-year contract.
