City say Sven will lead tour of Thailand

Manchester City have reiterated that Sven-Goran Eriksson will lead the team on a post-season tour of the Far East. The former England manager's future at Eastlands has been the subject of much speculation, with owner Thaksin Shinawatra expected to relieve Eriksson of his duties at the end of the current campaign and Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari widely tipped as a successor. After Sunday's 1-0 loss to Liverpool, Eriksson said his future would be clarified next week at the conclusion of the Barclays Premier League season. However, whatever the outcome of his meeting with Thaksin, it appears the 60-year-old will lead City in Thailand and Hong Kong later this month. 'The media speculation does not affect the visit,' club spokesman Paul Tyrell told the Bangkok Post newspaper. 'Mr Eriksson will be attending.' City will arrive in Thailand on May 14 to open a club store and hold a clinic before playing against Thailand Premier All-Stars on May 17. A match with a South China Invitation XI follows in Hong Kong on May 22.
