Sven really is the man

Mexico's Justino Compean says the fed has picked Sven. Sven doesn't speak Spanish, but perhaps, like Ruud Gullit, his Italian helps him get by.

Doesn't Sven have to have discussions with Mexico? His agent says there has been absolutely no contact.

I don't know, the head of the Mexican federation saying Sven is the guy strikes me as all but signed and sealed. But you're right, it all fell apart at the last minute with the U.S. and Klinsy, too.

Phillip,

In the latest interview with his agent, whom I forget the name of, declared that Sven had accepted the terms proposed by FMF and had already reached a financial agreement also. It's just a matter of days before he's introduced as the new Mexico boss.

I'm curious to see if the English press would consider this a step down for him.

On a lighter note, as a Sam's Army member, I'm looking forward to chanting "Shut up, Sven." for half a game. :)

Sven-Goran Ericksen? With such talent as Steve Sampson lying fallow? ;)

/sarcasm off

Not to mention Frank Rijkaard....
