Man City desperate to land Riquelme

A City source told The Sun: “What English people don’t understand is Eriksson is considered a bigger and better manager than Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger by most players in Europe.

“His reputation eclipses any of the big three. He’s a legend over in Europe.

“Eriksson wanted Riquelme before the transfer window and is still desperate to get him.”
