Svenis the Menace

An impersonator has been caught fooling a top league Mexican football club into believing he is the country’s national football manager Sven Göran Eriksson.

English comedian Derek Williams was given the grand tour of the Universidad Nacional’s stadium with false documents claiming to be from the Mexican football federation, reports English newspaper, The Guardian.

No one picked up on the impostor until the federation themselves released a statement later that day saying the real Sven was alive and well in the US.

The club’s manager saw the funny side of the prank, admitting he had been duped by the fake Swede.
