So the story goes.If I'm reading everything right and reports are correct, the situation is as follows :
Levy wanted Poch
Poch told PSG he wanted to leave
PSG told Poch he has to go public with his wanting to leave
Poch hasn't, and doesn't want, to go public
Which means Poch can't leave PSG
Levy is now looking at other managers.
I mean from Pochs point of view.PSG not wanting to pay loyalty etc ????
Gotcha.I mean from Pochs point of view.
As the story goes, Poch wants out, Poch talks to us and agrees its on, Poch goes to PSG and says he wants out - PSG dont want to lose face and insist he makes his desire to leave public*
....and so Poch shuts his mouth and settles into PSG for another couple of years.
I dont get it.
*Standard procedure for players/manager to grease the wheels of a move
I can buy into thisRelieved AF.
I wanna see Poch properly prove himself, tactically, before he comes back here.
We're about to have one of the top 5 managers, currently, in the world come to our club... straight off of a title win (his 5th in 7 seasons).
We should all be running around naked in the streets with elation and in disbelief.
We must get rid of just wanting to just FEEL GOOD. Familiarity.
It might FEEL uncomfortable, for some, to have Conte, but in very real terms it's fucking sensational for our club.
It's actually amazing to me that people are sad we're not getting Poch over Antonio.
It's pretty fucking bonkers tbh.
Anyway, just think of it all as delayed gratification.
When Poch does eventually come back - and, clearly, he will - it will be be an absolute orgasm of warm fuzziness.
In the meantime, enjoy the ruthless savagery and tactical meticulousness of one of the very best managers on the planet.
Here... at OUR club.
