The 75-year-old led England to the World Cup in 2002 and 2006, but lost in the quarterfinals both times. Benfica, Roma, and Manchester City were among the teams he led throughout his illustrious four-decade managerial career.

Eriksson revealed to Swedish Radio P1 that he unexpectedly collapsed and later found out he had cancer. Due to health concerns, he made a reduction in his public appearances announcement in February of last year.

He said, “I don’t think my doctors can be completely sure; they can’t put a day on it.”
