Looks like it isn't just the FA who have been upset by Sven Goran Ericksson. Aston Villa manager David O'Leary has also not seen the funny side of the chat between the England manager and the 'Fake Sheikh'.
He said “It is not acceptable that the national coach speaks publicly about replacing another manager whilst he is in the post. I have given Sven every co-operation whenever he has asked and even supported the early finish to the season to allow more time for his World Cup preparation. I will of course continue to give the necessary co-operation, but want recorded my dissatisfaction and disappointment at his comments.”
This follows on from the weekends report in the News Of The World where Sven had a discussion about possible clubs for a Sheikh to approach to buy. Actually, the story is all too silly for words, for the full details click on these two links! Original Story Click Here and Sven Reaction Click Here
We asked in a poll after the weekends game if you would want Sven at Villa. 55% said yes, 15% said no and 30% said they didn't want Sven or O'Leary. So, as per usual, the Villa fans are split right down the middle!
Lets just hope a real Sheikh reads the report and thinks what a good idea it would be to buy this fabulous club!
