Eriksson’s role at the club is currently unclear, but it has been revealed by board member Otto Steiner, the Swede will not be taking control of the team with current coach Alexander Schmidt remaining in charge.
Steiner told the official club website: "The board has accepted that Sven-Goran Eriksson will be included in the coaching team of 1860. Alexander Schmidt will remain our coach. Executive Robert Schafer has the order to talk to both of them and to negotiate their exact duties."
