Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson believes he could be the man to take Australia to the World Cup, declaring the role a "big job" that he would be interested in.

There has been no shortage of candidates to fill the position since Ange Postecoglou's departure following qualification, with ex-German and US coach Jurgen Klinsmann and recently sacked Serbia manager Slavoljub Muslin being linked to the post in the past few days.

Eriksson, who has been unattached since being fired by Chinese club Shenzhen in June, is the latest to put his hand up, saying coaching at the World Cup is the "greatest thing you can do".

He also revealed he has taken an interest in the Socceroos performances and admitted he was shocked that Postecoglou resigned after booking the green-and-gold a spot in Russia.

"Yes of course I’m interested. It’s a big job, a big football country, you’re playing in the World Cup - again. You more or less always play in the World Cup,’’ Eriksson told the Herald Sun.

"I have watched some Australian games and I watched the games against Honduras, the last games.

"It was a surprise that (Postecoglou) resigned, I was surprised because he (qualified) them to the World Cup. But that’s life. (GOAL)
