Money for jam, Swedish style

From yesterday’s Guardian Unlimited

At least [Sven-Goren] Eriksson has the consolation of knowing he has sufficient money to cope with life as an unemployed manager. Having negotiated a lucrative settlement with the Football Association on formally leaving his post at the end of July he is earning £13,000 a day from his former employers under an arrangement scheduled to continue until next summer.

That’s £4,745,000 a year, if my calculator is telling the truth. Before tax, of course.
