Eriksson fell victim to an elaborate sting in which an undercover reporter from the now-defunct News Of The World newspaper pretended to be a wealthy sheikh.
When "Fake Sheikh" Mazher Mahmood convinced him he wanted to buy Aston Villa, the then-England manager was taped saying he would be prepared to leave the national team to become manager there.
After these discussions were made public, Eriksson spent the following day calling top members of the England squad to apologise, according to the Guardian.
However, both the FA and Eriksson denied this played a part in the decision for him to leave his England job after the 2006 World Cup.

Eriksson also found himself embroiled in a scandal which involved his private life.
Former FA secretary Faria Alam (pictured) had affairs with both Eriksson and the Association's chief executive Mark Palios. She resigned but took the case to an employment tribunal, claiming she was the victim of constructive dismissal.
She also claimed she was sexual harassed by FA executive director David Davies, something he strongly denied.
Details of her relationships were splashed across newspapers for some time but she lost the case.

Hodgson was the subject of ridicule over his speech when it was announced that he would be taking the reins of the England squad.
Hodgson does not have a speech impediment but the style of speech is called rhotacism - when a speaker pronounces an R to sound more like a W.
He was mocked by The Sun, who ran the headline "Bwing On The Euwos" on their front page.
The FA was said to be furious at the front page, releasing a statement which said: "The FA and the Press Complaints Commission have today received a large number of objections relating to the front page headline in the Sun newspaper, regarding Roy Hodgson's manner of speech.
"On this occasion, we will not be making an official complaint to the PCC but we have raised it with the newspaper and made it clear that their front page is unacceptable to us."

Capello quit his role as England manager after the team's captain John Terry had the captaincy removed by the Football Association.
Terry had been stripped of the captaincy over allegations that Terry had racially abused Queen's Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand.
But this was not the first time Terry had lost the captaincy. Capello himself had sacked him as captain following allegations he had an affair with team mate Wayne Bridges' ex-girlfriend.
Bridge quit the England squad over the incident.
Capello faced criticism for his handling of the whole Terry affair from the media.
