He'll be gone as soon as a bigger club comes along, you mark my words. He's a bad egg interested in himself and himself only. We gave him his big chance and haven't had a word of thanks. A legend on the touchline and a nightmare in the back rooms.

Still sichio, some clubs would be happy with "legend on the touchline", because of the lack of success in the recent past.
