Manager Manuel Pellegrini’s agent has been in the press today for some reason, and whilst saying his client fully intends to honour his contract, he was also very interested in talking about Napoli.

Reports are starting to surface in the press now from an interview Jesus Martinez has held with Radio Crc.

In that interview he apparently explained.

‘Manuel has another year on his contract, and he intends to respect it. I don’t know however, what the leadership’s intentions are. Pellegrini has Italian roots, he’s also been on holiday in Naples. He’s a lover of language and culture. He greatly appreciates Italy and Neapolitan culture.’

I like ice cream as well.

‘You never know in football. Could he replace Benitez? Pellegrini does not allow me to talk about him in relation to a position at a club which already has a coach under contract.’

He goes on to say apparently.

‘We have to wait a few more months, then if (President) De Laurentiis calls, we’ll discuss it.’

I doubt very much whether these quotes comprise the full interview, but with a year left to run on his deal come the summer, mounting speculation about his future, and with Rafael Benitez out of contract in the summer I believe – curious timing one would say.

Especially as his agent doesn’t have permission to talk about other clubs, so I’m not sure if this goes down as one of the best face value agent fails in history?

Quick, somebody get him a cake.
