Robbie Fowler reveals “call’s gone in” for Sven-Goran Eriksson to manage at Anfield

After Sven-Goran Eriksson’s revelation that he had “always wished to be the manager of Liverpool,” the club are now in talks over a one-off appearance.

Former England manager Eriksson delivered sad news this week, as he revealed he is suffering with terminal cancer and has “best case a year” to live.

Reflecting on his life in an interview with Sky News, the 75-year-old admitted he had “always been” a Liverpool fan and had “always wished to be the manager.”

That sparked calls for Eriksson to fulfil a lifelong ambition for him and his father, who is still alive today, by appointing the Swede to the dugout for the Liverpool vs. Ajax charity clash in March.

Liverpool Legends host their Ajax counterparts in aid of the LFC Foundation on March 23, with Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush slated to manage the Reds.

But as confirmed by Robbie Fowler on Sunday, the “call [has] gone in” for Eriksson to take part as well.

Fowler was replying to former club physio Andy Renshaw and fellow legend Luis Garcia, who first admitted that there was “still a chance.”

No details have been announced yet regarding who will feature for Liverpool in the latest charity clash, but Fowler and Garcia are expected to be involved.

It would be heartwarming to see Eriksson included in some capacity, and would certainly be fitting of the occasion in support of the LFC Foundation.

Last year, Liverpool announced that their two legends games against Man United and Celtic at Anfield last season had raised a combined £1.45 million for the club charity.
