According to The Sun, Egyptian giants Zamalek have approached Sven Goran Eriksson to replace Portuguese coach Augusto Inacio, who was fired earlier this month.

The Swede's previous coaching stint lasted only seven months – he was announced as the manager of Chinese club Shenzhen in December, but was sacked in June.

Eriksson has confirmed that his representative has been in contact with the African club ahead of a possible switch.

"My agent told me that someone from Zamalek contacted him, and told him about the club's interest in signing me," the Swede said, as quoted by The Sun.

"Egypt is a great country, and Zamalek is a well-known club.

"We will have another phone call with an official from the club to speak about the offer."

The 69-year-old would bring a lot of experience to the Cairo side, having spent five years with the England national team, as well as spells with Manchester City and Leicester City too.

Zamalek have won 12 league titles and 25 Egyptian Cups in their history, but have been overshadowed in recent times by arch-rivals Al Ahly.
