According to Sunday 15th February 2009 edition of the News of the World, Manchester City FC are seeking the services Luiz Felipe Scolari.

The tabloid headlined the following…

Manchester City plan to use Luiz Felipe Scolari and the Brazil connection to land Kaka.

Vital MC says…

Mark Hughes is under contract and so how on earth can Scolari land Kaka?

NOTW continues…

City chiefs know Scolari will spend the next six months in England learning the language properly and studying the English game while his son Fabricio finishes the school term.

That leaves Scolari in pole position to replace Mark Hughes at Eastlands ? and act as the perfect bait to lure Kaka from AC Milan.


Vital Man City says…

The first paragraph sounds believable, however on the second.

Scolari did an average job whilst managing Chelsea and if I was to be honest, he would have probably come up with the goods if only he had been given the time. But now the hacks have the knives out yet again.

I don’t think it takes a genius to work out that Sparky’s future at Eastlands is numbered. Whether he goes tomorrow, next week, next month or at the end of the season, ADUG, in my opinion has his cards marked.

However, what if, and only if Scolari was appointed. How long would it take before the tabloids began to sharpen their pencils and began to write that the Brazilian was not up to the job? I would suggest after City’s first defeat.

City are in a no win situation. There are journalists out there who will write what ever they can to make their story onto the back pages. Yes, they have a living to make, but Mark Hughes and Co have a job to do.

In short, my suggestion is this. Can all the hacks disappear under the rock they crawled out of and leave our wonderful club alone? Cheers.
