What other European ‘super-club’ would have him at this stage, you’d wonder.
Madrid? Been there, burned bridges.
PSG? Blanc has extended his contract recently to 2018.
Bayern? Ancelotti incoming.
Don’t think the words “settle down” are in his vocabulary.
For those of us of a certain vintage, who recall English football pre-Premiership, it’s astonishing, to me at least, how English football has abandoned the idea of having British managers. What’s more, for top English clubs it’s now pushing beyond the hiring of a continental coach onto the plan of preferably luring one from an elite band of men who appear content to do a ‘European tour’ of clubs (Hiddink, Ancelotti, Guardiola, Mourinho, Benitez, et al).
Maybe it’s just the media tracking of the story we’ve been fed but surely, SURELY, a club as big as Man Utd would cast their managerial net wider than just Mourinho or Giggs?
