Eriksson on Euro2024: “England and France favourites. I hope Italy goes a long way ahead”

During the interview granted for today’s edition of The Republicthe former coach of Roma, Lazio and Sampdoria Sven Goran Eriksson he focused on the Europeans. The Swedish coach expressed his comments on the possible favorite for the final victory, focusing on England, which he coached from 2001 to 2006: “It’s my favorite with France, who I see as very strong. I also like Spain and Germany, who has the advantage of playing at home. And I hope they go a long way, I will cheer for you. I honestly don’t think they can win.

What if there is a new Eriksson on the bench? There are many good coaches – continued Eriksson -. I exchanged a few words with Jurgen Klopp when I went to Liverpool. I have always admired him for how he behaves on the pitch and for what he says into the microphones. He has a very strong image. And behind it you can clearly see a special person.

Am I ready for the homage he will receive at the Olimpico? But it is I who must thank – concluded the coach who, after having been at Marassi in recent weeks, will return to his stadium today to watch the match between Lazio and Sassuolo -. These days give me honor, they give me energy, they give me life.”
