- Wed, 26 Feb 2020 14:40:09 +0000: Sven-Göran Eriksson: 'Blackburn let me join Lazio. I thank them every day' - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
Lazio are in a title race for the first time in years. When they last won Serie A 20 years ago, Sven-Göran Eriksson was in charge
Serie A was the best league in the world when Roma offered me the job of manager in 1984. All of the best players went there. I was managing Benfica when they knocked out Roma in the Uefa Cup quarter-finals the year before, which is the reason that offer was made. When it came, I took it – it was time to move.
I joined a good team, but an old team. Roma had been successful with Nils Liedholm, another Swedish coach. They had won the league in 1983 and gone on to play in the European Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Liverpool, a few months before I arrived. It was a team full of success, full of great players and names. They felt like they were the kings of Rome.Continue reading...
