Sven-Göran Eriksson to manage Liverpool legends amid cancer battle

Posted : 13 February 2024

Former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson is set to fulfill his dream of managing Liverpool, despite his ongoing battle with cancer. Liverpool announced on Tuesday that Eriksson, aged 76, will take charge of the club's legends side in a charity match against Ajax scheduled for March 23. Eriksson revealed last month that he has been diagnosed with cancer and has been given a prognosis of one year to live "at best."


The former England coach, who led the national team between 2001 and 2006, expressed his lifelong allegiance to Liverpool and will now manage the club's legends alongside iconic players like Ian Rush, John Barnes, and John Aldridge in the annual LFC Foundation charity match.


Sven-Göran Eriksson made a name for himself by winning league titles at various clubs, including Lazio in Italy, Benfica in Portugal, and Gothenburg in Sweden. During his tenure as England's manager, he guided the team to the quarterfinals of the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, facing elimination by Brazil and Portugal, respectively.


Eriksson, who coached a range of teams post-England, including Manchester City and Mexico, has always been a passionate Liverpool fan. Despite his personal health challenges, he is set to realize his dream of managing Liverpool in the charity match, joining other former Liverpool players like Jerzy Dudek, Martin Škrtel, Fábio Aurélio, Djibril Cissé, and Ryan Babel.


The announcement of Eriksson's involvement in the charity match has garnered anticipation and warm support from the Liverpool community. The event is not only an opportunity for fans to see Eriksson in the dugout but also serves as a fantastic fundraising occasion for the LFC Foundation.


The match will bring together former Liverpool legends and football enthusiasts, creating a special moment for Eriksson, his family, and everyone connected with the club.
