London, Jan 11 : Former England football manager Sven Goran Eriksson has set his roving eyes on 'Strictly Come Dancing' winner Alesha Dixon.
The Manchester City boss said that Dixon was 'his type' after watching her appearance on Sky Sports' Soccer AM.
"Some of the younger lads like Micah and 'keeper Joe Hart have a real soft spot for Alesha," The Sun quoted an insider, as saying. "A few of the team were relaxing at the hotel last weekend before their FA Cup game against West Ham when Alesha came on Soccer AM. The lads were sitting around joking that they wouldn't mind being on the sofa with her or showing her how to tango.
"But smooth Sven proved to be the perfect gent - remarking how impressed he was by her dancing and that she was definitely his type.
"He doesn't get much time to watch television but Strictly Come Dancing was always on in the lounges after games at the City Of Manchester Stadium," the insider added.
