Eriksson denies 1860 Munich link

Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has denied talk of him taking over as manager at German second-division team 1860 Munich.

Eriksson, currently technical director at Thai club BEC-Tero Sasana, has become a frequent guest at 1860's games over the past month. The Swede has strong ties with Jordanian investor Hasan Ismaik, who holds 49% of the club's shares.

After the sacking of 1860 coach Reiner Maurer on November 18, speculation has grown that the ex-Manchester City manager would fill the vacancy.

However, with reserve coach Alexander Schmidt currently in charge on a caretaker basis, Eriksson played down his link with the role.

"The club does not need a new coach," Eriksson told Sky TV at Tuesday's game between 1860 Munich and Paderborn. "There should be no speculation.

"I am here as an advisor. I know they want to build something big here."

The club are currently ranked fifth in Bundesliga II but are eight points off the promotion places.
