Former Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has been named new coach of Mexico just days after leaving his Eastlands post.

The appointment of the former England boss was announced at a media conference led by the Mexican Football Federation (Femexfut) president Justino Compean.

The Committee of the owners of the 18 top-flight teams unanimously approved the 60-year-old Swede as the successor to Hugo Sanchez, who was sacked in March for failing to guide the Under-23 side to the Olympics.

Eriksson, speaking in Spanish, said: "I want to thank the Mexican Football Federation for their confidence and support.

"Our goal is (to qualify to) the 2010 World Cup and try to do it better than in the past."

rated him as england boss..didnt play exciting football but at least got into finals of tournaments. unlucky as lost on penalties quite a bit

he did an amazing job of making citeh look a fairly decent team, enough to get him a knighthood in their eyes.

wish him well in his future job.
