LONDON (AFP) - Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd has laughed off claims that he contacted England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson about coming to St James' Park in the summer.


A press report Sunday claimed Shepherd had sent a text message to the Swede.


But Shepherd told Newcastle's website: "I must have amnesia as I can't remember sending a text message to Mr Eriksson - in fact I don't even have his number so I'd love to see this message.


"All I can say is that I'd like to wish Mr Eriksson well with England in the summer, and good luck for whatever he chooses to do after that."


Under-fire Newcastle boss Graeme Souness eased the pressure on himself a little with their 2-0 FA Cup fourth-round win at Cheltenham Saturday.
