Just what in the hell is going on in European football at the moment? WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN EUROPEAN FOOTBALL AT THE MOMENT?
Paris Saint-Germain have rejected an approach from Real Madrid for their coach Carlo Ancelotti, the club president, Nasser al-Khelaifi, said on Monday.
“They [Madrid] came and I discussed it with them,” Khelaifi said. “He’s got a contract with us for one more year … for me, he’s here next year. He’s a fantastic guy and I’m sure he’ll respect his contract.”
You know QSI and I used to be tight when we were all interested in exposing a certain Times-duping conman, who we will call Bob Real. Since then my polite inquiries on the Wayne Rooney saga have gone unanswered.
So I’m hurt a little here, guys. In any case, this is whack from Real Madrid. I suppose if it’s the bauble in Europe they’re obsessed with than Ancelotti makes it worth a punt, and no one should think this thing is anything more than a punt. But it does show Real Madrid is already flailing around for their Mourinho replacement. And…well. If you think Ancelotti—the guy who lost Ligue 1 to Montpellier last season—is going to knock Barcelona off their effing perch, I’ve got an HTC First to sell you (that’s tech humour of the kind you use when you get company-wide emails with news in the tech world. Tech is short for technology by the way).
