Who would be a football manager?

Who would be a modern-day football manager, hey?

Okay, so most get paid handsomely. However, like the players, the men in suits – tracksuits if you’re Martin O’Neill – get bombarded with verbal abuse continually – and not just from the fans.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is often labeled a pedophile by a few childish away fans. While former Hull City boss, now gardener extraordinaire, Phil Brown was dubbed “Tango” for most of last season for his rather unusual “tan” which held more than a hint of orange (the colour, not the flavour).

But if you thought that was paticularly distasteful, think again. And again.

After Tottenham lost 1-0 at home to Wigan (the team they tore apart 9-1 less than a year ago) their manager, ol’ Harry Redknapp, had to suffer further heartache when one Sky Sports reporter had the nerve to call him, the boss, the guv’nor, the gaffer…a “wheeler, deeler”!

Thankfully, Redknapp handled the incident with admirable professionalism and with a touch of class.
