'Ladies' man' Eriksson was a lousy lover, says Ex

'Ladies' man' Eriksson was a lousy lover, says Ex

In his new autobiography, former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson makes himself out to be a ladies' man, but one of his former lovers has pooh-poohed the image he has painted of himself.

In his book Sven: My Life, to be published on Tuesday, Eriksson claimed to have even more girlfriends than he has managed football teams. He has managed or been technical director or director of football at 17 of them, reported sports website HTC Sport.

Extracts from his autobiography appear to show that Eriksson spent as much time chasing women as he had pursing football trophies.

But one former lover, prominent TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson, 46, said that Erikkson was a lousy lover.

Ms Jonsson had a four-month affair with Eriksson in 2002 while he was dating Italian-American lawyer Nancy Dell'Olio.

Sex with Eriksson was as boring as putting together Ikea furniture because he "made love by numbers", she told Britain's The Sun.

She said: "Putting together a bookcase would probably have left me more satisfied.

"Sex with Sven was as ordered and functional as an Ikea instruction manual. It was devoid of passion.

"He had all this power and money, yet he is, without a doubt, the weakest man I have ever met in my entire life."
