"Sven Has A New Job At Dynamo Kyiv" Report
FORMER England manager Sven Goran Eriksson is set for another money-spinning job - just before he stops collecting £13,000 a day from the FA.
Sources in Ukraine are claiming the Swede has signed a lucrative contract with Dynamo Kiev and will be announced as their manager next week.
Eriksson had hoped to be put in charge of a top side in one of Europe's major leagues - but was forced to head to the former Soviet Union due to a lack of offers.
Despite his poor record with England, Sven, 59, is set to cash in again. His new contract with Dynamo will net him just over £2million a year, or £5,500 a day.
The deal was brokered in part by super agent Pini Zahavi and a source close to him said: "Sven signed a contract with Kiev's owner Ihor Surkis about 10 days ago and he will take over on May 14.
"He is excited to be going out to Kiev as it will give him a chance to prove he's a top manager again.
"Kiev might not be the first city he would chose to live in, but Dynamo play in the Champions League year in year out and that will give him the chance to take on Europe's top sides.
"During his meetings with top brass from the club he felt they had big ambitions and that was part of the attraction. Surkis is one of the richest men in Ukraine and he's pledged to back Sven in the transfer market.
"He is guaranteed to make a massive war chest available so he can bring in top players and make the club a European force."
Yet Eriksson's representative Athole Still said: "There was contact from Dynamo Kiev, but it came to nothing."
