Okay? From ESPN Soccernet

MEXICO CITY, June 3 (Reuters) – Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson was named as the new coach of Mexico on Tuesday.

Eriksson, sacked by English Premier League Manchester City on Monday, was approved at a meeting of the Mexican Football Federation’s executive committee, comprising the owners of the 18 first division clubs.

‘It’s unanimous. Eriksson has been accepted by all the owners,’ Jorge Vergara, president of the Guadalajara club, told reporters.

The 60-year-old Swede, who replaces Hugo Sanchez, will be in charge until the 2010 World Cup.

He probably won’t takeover the blues; “When asked if was a candidate for the Blues job, Eriksson told BBC Inside Sport: ‘No, I’m interested to have a good football team next season. There are other teams.'” That guy really knows how to make himself inpopular like few others know.

Other news also implies that Sheva Shevchenko is aiming to squeeze some last dollars out of his body before he can retire for good by moving to the MLS like Beckham, check this out. Probably not the best move when you hardly have been contributing with anything for your new team this season … Maybe both Sven and Sheva should take PR classes.
