Stranded Pep Guardiola apparently has agreed a €24m a year, 4 year deal to take over at Juventus - due to be unveiled on June 14th.


I don't believe this. Sounds like summertime internet rumour stuff


I do find it slightly odd that Pep's reaction is 'angry' rather than some other state.
Angry suggests it's a leak that he didn't want, as opposed to a made up story

Gattuso has left Milan, apparently stepping down instead of waiting for the sack and potentially giving up two years worth of compensation.

This is the first time since 2013 that Bielsa has completed a full season at the same club and he has never lasted more than 2 seasons at any club.

Add to that, he's raised expectations at a club where expectations were already unreasonably high. I'll be surprised if he's still there at Christmas.

Could Allegri be the one to replace him?

He's obviously a good manager but would he be willing to take on the Chelsea job with the transfer embargo meaning he couldn't add to his squad.

I see Leonid Slutsky is in the list of candidates

Sarri leaves Chelski

Cannot blame him, he did well, but fear for their next sacrificial lamb

Would be interesting how much extra slack, if any, Lampard got, were he to take the job.

Quite a bit more I would imagine, being a club legend and all that.

Good for Sarri getting the best job in Italy, from an outsider it certainly looked like he was harshly treated by the Chelsea fans.

You'd think - only recent examples I can think of though are Dalglish returning to Liverpool, which was short and sweet, and Giggs' short stint at United, albeit as caretaker, which wasn't seen as a success.

you can't think of a current manager/club_legend who scored the winner in a CL cup final.

Notably started tenure incredibly well and finished it equally shite!

Assume you meant Solskjaer, but I didn't think he'd really used up any 'slack' yet, given the mess United were in when he took over.

If he starts the season with Young, Jones and Smalling in the back 4 he's as good as gone
