Eriksson could stay with Elephants

Sven-Goran Eriksson has revealed he could remain in his position as Ivory Coast manager until the 2014 World Cup.

Eriksson took charge of Ivory Coast earlier this year following the dismissal of Vahid Halilhodzic but, with little preparation time and a difficult group alongside Brazil and Portugal, he was unable to guide the team to the second round.

Eriksson claims his employers were pleased with his efforts, though, and has indicated that he has been offered a new four-year deal.

"They were really pleased and I guess that I can stay on if I want to," he told SVT. "If so, it will be for four years until the next World Cup finals.

"I'll make up my mind in a week or so. I have to do it soon since there are friendlies in August and qualifiers for the Africa Cup of Nations in September and October."

Eriksson has also been touted as a potential successor to Roy Hodgson at Fulham but, asked about the position, he said: "I do not know, honestly. I do not think Fulham have decided what they want to do."
