King Carlo making way for this guy? Hell ******* no.
Spanish daily AS has fashioned a report of the utmost audaciousness this morning. Just ridiculous.
They reckon Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is downright infatuated with the chic stylings of one Pep Guardiola. I mean, yeah, his suits are stellar but come on now.
Romes apparently is already sick of the Itailan job, and has quickly turned his beading eyes toward the Barcelona manager. Guardiola has refused to sign an extension to his current contract at the Catalan club, which comes to an end on 30 June, making him one of the world's hottest coaching commodities. Of course, this Pep to Guardiola gar-bage surfaces only a few days after Pep was tabbed as the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
Supposedly former Chelsea boy Albert Ferrer, also a former teammate of Guardiola, has been lined up as Pep's No. 2 at Chelsea. Makes sense, especially considering Ferrer just this week took over the fledgling outfit at Vitesse. Yeah.
Then there's Txiki Begiristain. What would be a Chelsea-Barcelona link without a mention of this cat. Barca's former director of football has been linked with a position at Chelsea for months, is mentioned in the article. It seems he will be our new technical secretary. Fan-*******-tastic.
So, to recap:
• Romes is sick of Carlo. Nonsense.
• Pep is THE guy. Nonsense.
• AS is a reliable source. Nonsense.
Sounds about right. Now, watch this **** become one of the great exclusives of 2010. I'm going to throw up.
