Hot on the heels of claims that Man City owner Thaksin Shinawatra has been so dismayed by his team’s ropey form that he is considering giving Sven the chop, comes these revelations; he isn’t! The Independent reckons that all this “Sven Out” tripe is due to the fact that Thaksin Shinawatra surrounds himself with smarmy ‘super-agents’ who are continuously spraying rumours like spittle and desperately try and peddle their wares to the Thai billionaire.
A City spokesman said of the Sven sacking rumours:
“The chairman has made it clear only a few weeks ago that he is happy about the progress we have made this season with a top-10 finish being his target.
“We remain focused on continuing the domestic progress made under Thaksin Shinawatra.” (Independent)
So it looks like Sven and his lustrous receding hairline and Scandinavian machismo will be around for the foreseeable future…
