Eriksson plays down language barrier

Sven-Goran Eriksson is confident there will be no language barrier to success at Manchester City this season.

Eriksson added Bulgarian striker Valeri Bojinov to his collection of continental stars yesterday.

It took the number of new arrivals at Eastlands since Eriksson succeeded Stuart Pearce as manager last month to eight, none of whom are English-speaking.

But the Swede is confident the footballing ability of his side can transcend any short-term communication problems.

'The players will help each other,' he said. 'I am sure it will not be a problem because the language of football is easy.

'And you have to also remember the players have a life away from football as well, so they will also learn English in their spare time.'

There is still time for an English recruit as Eriksson confirmed there should be at least one more new face on show next week.

But he acknowledged the sky-high price tags attached to domestic talent are proving prohibitive.

'Of course there are a lot of good English players,' the former England manager said. 'I have no doubt about that.

'But if you want to buy the best young English players, the prices are over the roof.

'We have been looking and you will have to see if we sign one or not. But in any case, when the season starts we will have eight or nine British or Irish players, which is a good number.'
