With the start of the season a week away, two papers focused on the futures of English soccer’s two most high profile managers. The Sunday Express quoted the Football Association’s new chief executive, Mark Palios, as saying Eriksson might quit if the team didn’t make it to Portugal for the European Championship. “We are not contemplating it. But he might not be here in 2004 because, if we don’t reach the European Championship finals, how does he feel about that?” Palios was quoted as saying. “If we reach the finals, do we win in style? Do we lose in the early rounds or lose in the quarterfinals? “There are so many things that can happen that that would change everybody’s perspective over the situation. ” Eriksson has been the subject of speculation that he might move to Chelsea, which has been taken over by billionaire Russian businessman Roman Abramovich and has hired seven new players so far with another expected in the next few days… ” Eriksson has been the subject of speculation that he might move to Chelsea, which has been taken over by billionaire Russian businessman Roman Abramovich and has hired seven new players so far with another expected in the next few days. He admitted that he met Abramovich but said it was purely social because he had known the Russian’s agent, Pini Zahavi, for many years. His contract with England ends after the 2006 World Cup in Germany and the team has a great chance to qualify for Euro 2004 as group winner over Turkey. England lies two points behind but has a game in hand. “Does it occur to me that that he will gone after 2004?” Palios said. It’s one of the considerations that you have. But, at the same time, if he has done well at Euro 2004 and he tells me he has an offer to go somewhere else and wants to renegotiate his contract, what then?” Meanwhile Ferguson, who led Manchester United to its eighth league title in 11 years having extended his spell at Old Trafford to 19 years, wants to stay on even longer, according to the Independent on Sunday.
