This is a weird, weird extract from the interview. It feels as if this is a sly dig at Levy or hints he may leave? Usual a manager would talk on what they want to do or achieve, but something doesn't feel right here 

according to a Spanish report from earlier this week, there was a number of players who wanted to leave at the beginning of the season.  maybe poch just sees a CL win as something he simply cannot exceed at spurs and would take a break before a new challenge.

Even a final, there is very little he can do to top that. He isn't given anywhere near enough the funds to feasibly get this team better.

Barca have tapped him up. He’s off to Spain. Not much to explain really. He builds teams. Barca need a team.

What?  Are you for real?  Barca offer him the job and he turns it down? Not in a million years. Takes it all day long.

Actually, irrelevant of anything else, I’m not sure being Barca manger would appeal to him ....... you are expected to win everything each year and you already have all the tools. Poch is more of a builder  .......

This may actually be the perfect time to go to Barca for him. Their team is in need of a rebuild, most of their pros are ageing and need transitioning out. 

 

he'd be able to build the team how he wanted whilst using the old guard and transitioning them out

The worst kept secret in soccer is out. Mike Phelan has been named as Manchester United’s assistant manager on a three-year deal.

 

Phelan, 56, has been Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s assistant since December when the pair were placed in caretaker charge following Jose Mourinho’s firing. With Solskjaer appointed as the new head coach on a permanent basis last month following a stunning start to life as a caretaker boss, Phelan has had to wait but his place alongside Solskjaer has now been confirmed.

 

A long-time assistant under Sir Alex Ferguson, Phelan held that role as Fergie’s assistant from 2008-13 and was first team coach from 2001 before that.

 

“I am thrilled to be back as assistant manager. Manchester United has been a huge part of my life since I joined as a player in 1989 and I am delighted to be able to continue that relationship in this key role,” Phelan said. “Since returning in December, I have enjoyed working with Ole, Michael, Kieran, Mark and Emilio and we are all focused on preparing for the new season.”

Utd should have waited until the end of the season and gone for poch. He may think he has achieved all he can win or lose in the final. They could lose 2 or 3 of there best players and not replace them with the same quality plus they will still need the extra players to fill the squad incase they get the injuries they have had this season. Would be surprised if there wasn’t a big team from abroad looking and son for next season.

Is there ANY way we could still see Burnley relegated? Can someone with a bit of knowhow do some number crunching and work out they are actually in administration in the next couple of hours?
