Rumors & Realities: Frustrated? Try Punching an English Fan
Are you a frustrated football manager? Has your side crashed out? Do you want to feel better? Try punching an English fan! That will make you feel better, R-R is sure!
One of the R-R all-time favorites, Jose Mourinho, must be happy to move the spotlight away from Inter's failure to qualify to the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals.
However, the controversial figure, whom R-R labels "The Controversial One", faces even more controversy.
After the Inter crashed out at the hands of Manchester United, Mourinho talked to the press, punched a United fan and shared a bottle of fine wine with Sir Alex Ferguson in what was a "special" night.
R-Rthinks those who are really worthy of getting punched by Mourinho are his players who failed to convert easy chances.
Staying in Milan, an all-time favorite Web site (R-R would rather keep it unnamed for professional reasons) writes that Milan are ready to "raid" Roma for their best defenders in order to "reinforce their aging backline."
Among the names that Milan are "keen to sign" are Philippe Mexes and 35 year-old Cristian Panucci. Considering that Paolo Maldini is 40, R-R guesses Panucci is relatively young.
In Manchester, United's Web site have deleted an interview with Wayne Rooney where the English striker said he "hates Liverpool." Doesn't everybody at United hate Liverpool?
And the buoyant United players continue to comment on miscellaneous subjects. Cristiano Ronaldo has promised that he will stay at Old Trafford next season.
However, even if Ronaldo signs a life-time contract, Marca are yet to become bored of linking him to a move to Real Madrid.
Marca, among other websites and journals, have been toying with plenty of rumors about the ins and outs in the white part of Madrid. Untrusted sources believe Real will sell 17 players and keep only the cream of their crop.
And the hints continue to be dropped like light and unheard bombs in England as temporary Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink hints he will be sitting on the Stamford Bridge benches permanently.
According to The Mirror, Hiddink has held talks with on-loan striker Scott Sinclair in order for the latter to return to Chelsea in July. What a hint!
Valencia have warned Manchester City off David Villa but have signalled that, should Villa leave for the City of Manchester, it will be for a grand sum.
Richy rich Manchester City won't mind paying up—even though sources state Valencia have set a £40million asking price on Villa's head.
In transfer Rumors & Realities, Wolves' manager Mick McCarthy is preparing to make a £2million move for Aston Villa outcast Marlon Harewood.
McCarthy has targeted Harewood this summer in a bid to power up his strike force.
Meanwhile Kolo Toure insists his relationship with William Gallas is better—but they will never be friends, according to The Mirror.
He said, "Our relationship has improved, but it's just a professional relationship. Once we are on the pitch we try to keep a professional attitude and to communicate.
"I'm friends with [Johanne] Djourou, with [Emmanuel] Eboue, with [Gael] Clichy, but it's not the same with William.
"It's the same within every company, you can't be friends with everybody."
Are you tired of your co-worker? Do you play in the English Premier League?
Frustrated? Try punching an English fan!
The next time Toure is in Old Trafford, he might go ahead and do a "Mourinho."
That's it for R-R for now, stay updated for the future editions.
