Sven-Goran Eriksson decides Pyongyang not a good career move

Soccer manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has apparently rejected the chance to become North Korea’s World Cup technical advisor for 2010. According to the Guardian, the former England manager, now Notts County's director of football, received an approach from the North Korean FA but, having thought about it for a while, decided against it. However, Notts County's executive chairman Peter Trembling said, “We wish to make it clear that Notts County have not received any approach nor had any discussions whatsoever with the North Korean FA in relation to Sven-Goran Eriksson becoming an interim manager of their national team.” Too bad, Eriksson isn’t going to get a chance to see those thousands of Kim Il Sung memorials or the mountaintop where he was allegedly born.
