Manager departs League Two outfit

Sky Sports News understands that Notts County manager Hans Backe has left the club. Swedish coach Backe was brought to the club by director of football Sven Goran Eriksson at the end of October on a three-year contract to replace Ian McParland. Since then the club have been sold by Munto Finance to executive chairman Peter Trembling, who finalised his buy-out over the weekend. Trembling wants Eriksson and his staff to remain at the club, but now Sky Sports sources understand that Backe has departed after just over six weeks at Meadow Lane. Speculation over Eriksson's future is also now likely to intensify, with fresh reports claiming he was ready to quit the club over unpaid wages.
