Irish side deny move for Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini
League of Ireland side Cobh Ramblers have posted a cheeky denial that Manuel Pellegrini will be taking over as manager at the club in the summer.
The Manchester City manager, who is set to leave the Etihad in the summer, was spotted in the County Cork town on Sunday on a short break during international week.
The 62-year-old is looking for a new club for next season with Pep Guardiola taking over at City next season. However, Cobh insist they will not be taking on the Chilean.
Despite Manuel Pellegrini being spotted in Cobh today, we can confirm that he is not set to join the club https://t.co/AcKoyNdcAV— Cobh Ramblers FC (@CobhRamblersFC) March 27, 2016
This will assuredly come as good news to current manager Stephen Henderson.
The club has had some famous players in the past including ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane, former City player Stephen Ireland and Westlife singer Nicky Byrne.
