Pellegrini not off to Barcelona, Sevilla or Plymouth!

Manuel Pellegrini has been linked to a move to Barcelona, Sevilla and Plymouth this week as the silly season kicks in.

Stories in Pellegrini’s native Chile have linked the manager to a move to Barcelona or Sevilla this summer. Sources close to the coach quickly denied the claims to the Daily Mail categorically saying he has no intention of leaving the club he took over last summer.

Sevilla wanted Pellegrini 12 months ago and now find themselves looking for a new manager again with caretaker boss Joaquin Caparros not likely to remain into next season. Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is also under pressure after their humbling at the hands of Liverpool in the Champions League.

Perhaps the most ludicrous story comes from Plymouth with one local paper suggesting Pellegrini was in town as a candidate for the Plymouth job. The 65-year-old was photographed with a chef at the Rockfish restaurant in Brixham and was seen by many strolling around the town taking in the sea air.

  1. Could be he’s thinking about Torquay Utd now their back in the national league, mind You Rockfish does a cracking cod & chips!! 😆

  2. Ridiculous to even mention the Plymouth thing. No one has published anything serious about linking Pellegrini to the Plymouth job. All clearly a wind up. Write better please.

    • It’s called humour, lighten up a bit!

    • That’s telling you, Sean …. ! Personally, I loved the story. Laurie’s right – Rockfish do excellent fish and chips. And the prices are OK so he’s not wasting his transfer kitty on his tea. Manuel is obviously a man of the people who’s enjoys good food and the great British seaside …

  3. Blimey the summer silly season has started early. Gareth Bale reported to be buying a flat in Canary Wharf? Anton Griezeman spotted on an LS stadium tour? Roll on August…
