Scolari Speaks, Chelsea Bleeds, Becks and Giggs Learn Their Fates and More!
Luiz Felipe Scolari shed some insight into his situation at Chelsea right before he was given the pink slip by Roman Abramovich on Monday. He admitted that he had no relationship with his players off the pitch, and took several players (their initials are D.D. and F.M.) to task for not playing well. Oh, and he believes that Robinho would have solved all his problems.
By the way, Chelsea are hemorrhaging funds, and that doesn’t include Scolari’s expected £7.5m buyout. Hmm… They paid Mourinho and Grant a combined £23 million. That’s £30.5m for their last three managers. You know who they could have gotten for (almost) that amount of money? Here’s a hint, he plays at Manchester City, he really wanted Kaka to come over, and he scored one of the sweetest goals you’ll ever see against Italy, this past Tuesday.
It will be a tense weekend in the Beckham home, and not because Becks’ alleged former paramour is pregnant. L.A. Galaxy is expected to decide on Friday if they want to sell their prized asset to A.C. Milan. Becks, for his part, seems to be shunning the Milan night life, much to Posh’s happiness.
The ageless Ryan Giggs has signed a new contract with Manchester United. Hey, if he keeps scoring them like this, then he’s a steal as far as I’m concerned.
Sven Goran Eriksson got the dreaded vote of confidence from the Mexican Football Federation as he continues to be linked to Portsmouth. By the way, one of his assistant coaches slapped U.S. defender Frankie Hejduk after the U.S. defeated Mexico on Wednesday. Stay classy Mexico!
Unsettled Tottenham striker Darren Bent is upset and he isn’t going to take it anymore! No truth to the rumor that Harry Redknapp asked for that vow in writing.
Virgin Airlines has capitalized on Robbie Keane’s misery. That ain’t right.
