Sven-Goran Eriksson joins 1860 Munich

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has joined German second division side 1860 Munich.

Eriksson’s role at the club is currently unclear, but it has been revealed by board member Otto Steiner, the Swede will not be taking control of the team with current coach Alexander Schmidt remaining in charge.

Steiner told the official club website: "The board has accepted that Sven-Goran Eriksson will be included in the coaching team of 1860. Alexander Schmidt will remain our coach. Executive Robert Schafer has the order to talk to both of them and to negotiate their exact duties."

Since leaving the England job after the 2006 World Cup, Eriksson has coached in leagues around the world including spells in Mexico, England and Africa.

Most recently he found himself working with BEC Tero Sasana in the Thai Premier League.

1860 Munich currently finds itself sixth in the second division, five points off third-placed Kaiserslautern.
