The Return of Z.Z
I was sitting on my sofa in my lovely new expensive house in France, kicking back enjoying my retirement. I’ve been retired for four years now and I love it, however I wish I could somehow get back into the football business. I’m obviously too old to continue playing, the risk of getting a serious injury is too much. So, that’s when it came to me. Manager. Imagine that, Zinedine Zidane a manager. Lot’s of the former top footballers are doing so why can’t I? So I sat there and thought. What club would be willing to hire me as manager? So I opened up my laptop and went into Internet Explorer and typed in ‘Sacked Managers’. It came back with some results but this was hopeless, the best team I could find to manage was some team in England called Dartford FC. I thought to myself that maybe being a manager was too big of an ambition and for a while gave up on the dream of becoming a manager. So I shut down my laptop and through it onto my king-sized bed. Then I realized, am I being greedy? I have a brilliant life, an amazing house and an amazing wife. But I still wanted more, the football business isn’t something I can just walk away from so I turned on the 50 inch, plasma screen TV and it went straight to one of my favorite channels. ESPN News HD they were talking to Sheikh Mansour, owner of Manchester City. Then along the bottom on the scrolling news headlines it said ‘Manchester City owner sacks manager along with all backroom staff’. I couldn’t believe it, this is possibly the ultimate opportunity for me to become a manager, a top team, lots of money and a vacant managers position. So I turned up the TV too almost full volume so I can hear exactly what Sheikh was saying, they were interviewing him about a load of stuff about why they sacked him and blah,blah. It was obvious they sacked him because Spurs finished above them and got the Champions League spot but then Sheikh said the words I wanted to hear. “We will be reading applications for anyone who would like to become manager, just e-mail this address. [email protected]. So the first thing I did was grab my laptop turn it back on and typed up my application for manager of Manchester City. I was thinking to myself about how amazing it would be if I got the job. Once I had finished the application I typed in the e-mail address and clicked ‘Send’. I could not believe it. I had just applied for the job of manager of Manchester City.

I woke up this morning at about 9am, the dream I had was amazing, it was the dream that I got the job of manager at Manchester City. Then I thought, maybe a day was enough to be selected as manager. So I loaded up my e-mails on my laptop and it said "5 New E-Mails". I was hoping that maybe, just maybe one of those five was the announcement that I had become manager. However its was something completely different. Something I did not expect. The subject of the e-mail was "Vendetta" and the e-mail was from "[email protected]". I had never had an e-mail from this address. I opened the e-mail and could not understand anything in the e-mail apart from two words. "Manchester City". This was the e-mail "
Non preoccupatevi cercando di diventare manager del Manchester City, sarete cacciati e mi batterò con grande vendetta." I was frightened. Not knowing what it meant sent shivers down my spine. Someone knew I had applied for the job of manager of Man City and weren't happy about it. So I went into Google and typed in my name and Manchester City after it. The results showed the obvious, it had been leaked that I applied for the job and I was on a betting site showing the odds for the next manager of Man City.
