Former City manager Sven Goran Erikkson has been relieved of his duties as coach of Mexico, following their 3-1 defeat against Honduras in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.

The Swede moved to Mexico after he was given his marching orders by then-City chairman Thaksin Shinawatra, but the national side's inconsistent form has found them struggling to qualify for the finals in South Africa next year. Erikkson has received criticism for fielding a notable amount of overseas players, like Arsenal's Carlos Vela and Nery Castillo.
