He has used his London Evening Standard column today to make it clear that maybe there is a threat to his job after all.
He declares after explaining there was a sizeable turnout for his press conference yesterday: “It doesn’t take too much working out, does it? Just over a week before the end of the season and still no news on my future.
That doesn’t stop the constant speculation and, from my point of view, when I see name after name being mentioned as my possible successor, I think perhaps there’s no smoke without fire.
Maybe the owners are considering their options — maybe they’re not. The fact is, I’m not in a position of demanding when we sit down and talk about a new contract.
That has been crystal clear for some time but the speculation continues and I have to carry on answering the questions until we sit down and talk about things.”
