Sven Goran-Eriksson has been linked with the Fulham FC managerial position, while Roy Hodgson, the current job holder, is rumoured to be headed to Liverpool.

If Goran-Eriksson were to get the job, it would mean a second spell in the Premier League. His last spell in the Premier League, at Manchester City, lasted just one season. After he was fired, their was an outcry from fans, campaigning for his reinstatement.

Goran-Eriksson wasn't rehired, and since then, he has had less success. He failed with Mexico, and did not manage to guide the Ivory Coast past the group stage during this summer's World Cup.

Sven insists that he hasn't been contacted about the Fulham job, saying, "I think that they have a brilliant manager and I do not know if he is staying or, as rumoured, going to Liverpool, but so far I have heard nothing."

However, he did say that "It's a dream for every manager going into the Premier League, it is the best league in the world."

Fulham finished as runners up in the Europa League last season, a feat that has Liverpool more than interested in Hodgson.

It is looking more and more likely that Hodgson will go to Liverpool, although he may be offered the England job as well, if Capello leaves his post.

Fulham's recent success has been largely due to Hodgson, meaning that Goran-Eriksson will have large boots to fill.

If or when Hodgson leaves, he will have left Fulham with a strong squad high on confidence. This will give Goran-Eriksson the best possible chance to reboot his career and keep Fulham flying high.
