Interesting to see this pop up out of nowhere

Recommended Posts

"He previously led Palermo into the UEFA Cup and has developed a strong

reputation for getting the best out of smaller clubs on limited budgets,

identifying and nurturing talented young players and bringing them

through into the first team before selling them on for a profit."Little ld Norwich.  Sack the board!

This is to random to be idle gossip in my opinion and the fact he has denied it in the press.

If he was alleged to have been asked directly, which he has denied as pure rumour.  
Where the hell has the rumour come from in the first place?

Comes from England apparently;

Although it has often been unclear about the future, there are always rumors that concern. From England they say that there would be an interest of Norwich ...

"I just talk, it is at this time we do not need to talk. My thoughts turned to the next game, the team that currently, quite rightly, is the queen of the provincial , Verona. did not think about anything else. "

A better translation would be - "It''s just talk. Rumours we don''t need now, I''m only concentrating on the next game."

Still, had to come from somewhere...

We are told that players from abroad take time to settle down to our game. How about managers and coaches from abroad with the added bonus of not being able to speak the same language as the team ?.

Are British managers so bad that we have to look abroad ?

Why on earth would he leave a club that has narrowly missed out on CL places and had top 5 finishes in the last 5 years to join a relegation scrap here? Totally bizarre rumour. I smell BS and the club being used as a random name in England to influence something in Italy, new contract perhaps?

What wages would he be on there compared to here? And transer budget? Maybe our board have been putting some feelers out.

Maybe its like Borat. Choose somewhere most people will know very little about, then you can use them any way you like...
