From yesterday’s Press conference

[ Would Defoe have been a better selection than Walcot ? ]

‘I don’t think so. If I thought that I would have picked him and I have seen him 15 or 20 times this season.’

And later, Eriksson just can’t help himself and, once again, shows his true colours

‘The reason (for Eriksson leaving the job after the World Cup) was a newspaper coming out with lies…that is why I have sued the newspaper. It has cost me a lot of money but I am sure I will get the money back’.

Good riddance.
