Ukrainian Football Federation (FFU) has started talks with former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson to take over as the national coach.

The FFU has not officially made any statement on the issue yet, saying it has had a list of five potential candidates for the coaching position, reports Xinhua.

Eriksson, 64, was appointed technical director of the Thai club BEC Tero Sasana in September.

He has managed Italy's Roma, Portuguese Benfica and England's Manchester City during his coaching career.

The coaching post in the Ukrainian national squad became vacant Sep 25, when recent head coach Oleg Blokhin left the team to take charge of Dynamo Kiev.
