Sven Goran Eriksson expects either Andreas Isaksson or Kasper Schmeichel to leave Man City.

Isaksson or Schmeichel could leave in summer

Sven Goran Eriksson expects either Andreas Isaksson or Kasper Schmeichel to leave Manchester City in the summer. Both goalkeepers have had spells in the City side this season but Joe Hart is currently first choice. Isaksson has been forced onto the substitutes' bench to wait for his chance, while Schmeichel is currently on loan at Coventry. Eriksson is happy to have three good keepers at his disposal but he accepts that they will all want to play regularly. The Swedish manager does not yet know the views of Isaksson and Schmeichel but he would be surprised to have them both in his squad at the start of next season. He said: "We haven't spoken about next season and we don't know at this moment what is happening with our goalkeepers. "The situation is good as it is, for us, but I can understand that Andreas and Kasper want to play regular football. "I should be quite surprised if both of them want to stay, I am quite sure that one of them would like to leave."
