Eriksson takes Al Nasr post in Champions bid

UAE Pro League runners-up Al Nasr have appointed former England coach Sven Goran Eriksson as the club’s technical director.

The 64-year-old Swede will work on the development of the team, which is coached by Italian Walter Zenga.

Eriksson was close to sealing a deal with the German second-division club 1860 Munich, but due to a “sudden change of heart”, according to the AFC website, pulled back from the offer.

Al Nasr will face Lokomotiv of Uzbekistan in order to advance to the 2013 AFC Champions League, where they would enter Group C and face Iran League champions Sepahan, Qatar’s Al Gharafa and 2012 ACL finalists Al Ahli.
