New Al Nasr technical director Sven-Goran Eriksson would like to bring David Beckham to the United Arab Emirates club.

Eriksson surprisingly agreed to join Al Nasr recently despite much interest in his services from elsewhere, with 1860 Munich in particular wanting the Swede.

But it is the Middle East which has tempted Eriksson and now the former Lazio coach wants Beckham to follow him.

"If he wants to come, I am sure that the doors will open for him", the Swedish tactician was quoted as saying by French sports daily L’Equipe.


"I still talk with him, even though I do not know where he will go."

Eriksson coached Beckham during his time in charge of the England national team, developing a close bond with the former Manchester United midfielder.

The 37-year-old is currently without a club, having left Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of last year, citing the need to experience a new challenge.
