Sven-Goran Eriksson: Liverpool FC

Sven-Goran Eriksson Embracing Anfield’s Aura

Sven-Goran Eriksson’s journey with Liverpool FC is a tale woven with passion, nostalgia, and an unyielding love for the beautiful game. In a recent interview with Liverpool FC, Eriksson opened up about his deep-seated connection with the club, recounting moments that have shaped his lifelong admiration for the Reds.

It all began in 1979 when Eriksson, then a young coach with IFK Gothenburg, took a leap of faith and sent a letter to the legendary Bob Paisley, expressing his desire to visit Liverpool and learn from the European champions of 1977 and 1978. To his surprise, Eriksson’s request was warmly welcomed, and he found himself immersed in the aura of Anfield.

“I remember being in the Boot Room after the game… We had been drinking tea there, and after a while I asked, ‘What about United, what did United do today?’ It must have been one hour after the game and they said, ‘We don’t know’! Can you imagine that you are so secure of yourself like Liverpool were? They did it their way, they didn’t care what others did,” Eriksson fondly recalled.

The simplicity yet high quality of Liverpool’s training sessions left a lasting impression on Sven-Goran Eriksson. It wasn’t just about the tactics or the skill drills; it was about the sense of unity and purpose that permeated through the club. Eriksson’s admiration for Liverpool only grew as he witnessed firsthand the unwavering confidence of the team and their steadfast commitment to their own style of play.

But Sven-Goran Eriksson’s connection with Liverpool extended beyond the pitch. It was a bond forged through shared values and traditions, transcending geographical boundaries. “I have always been a Liverpool fan, since I was a child. And my father, since he was much younger, has been a Liverpool fan also, so it is in the family. My brother is a Liverpool fan, my son is a Liverpool fan,” Eriksson revealed, highlighting the generational legacy of support for the Reds within his family.

Throughout his illustrious managerial career, Sven-Goran Eriksson’s passion for Liverpool never waned. Despite managing clubs of the calibre of Benfica, Roma, and Manchester City, Liverpool remained his club of choice. “Sometimes you are angry when the team isn’t doing very well. There were some years where nothing happened, but now it is happening again on the highest level possible. To be a Liverpool fan today is great!” Eriksson exclaimed, reflecting on the highs and lows of supporting the Reds over the years.

Despite his deep-rooted affinity for Liverpool, Eriksson never had the opportunity to manage the club competitively. “No, I didn’t… Maybe next season, maybe,” he lamented, recalling conversations with the club’s hierarchy during his tenure at Benfica. However, his managerial journey took him on a different path, leading teams across Europe and beyond.

But for Sven-Goran Eriksson, managing Liverpool was never just about the professional accolades; it was about the emotional connection he shared with the club and its supporters. “It’s great, because I never worked for Liverpool, only played against them! But I supported them with all my heart,” Eriksson confessed, expressing gratitude for the unwavering support he received from the Liverpool faithful throughout his career.
