Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson says he has “best case a year” to live after being diagnosed with cancer.
The 75-year-old Swede was the first foreign coach to manage England and led the side to the quarter-finals of the 2002 and 2006 World Cup and 2004 Euros.
“I’m going to resist for as long as I can,” Eriksson told Swedish Radio P1.
“I have an illness that’s serious. Best case a year, I have worst case a lot less. It’s impossible to say exactly, so it’s better to not think about it.”
Eriksson, who had a 42-year career in management, stood down from his most recent role as sporting director at Swedish club Karlstad 11 months ago because of health issues.
