I had just finished my interview with the chairman Sandro Rosell
and had wandered the city with my family and children. It was strange being back here and potentially working for the club whose senior team beat Manchester United
whilst I was there but it was a job opportunity nonetheless and I was beginning to get frustrated at the lack of opportunities. It’s already October and I haven’t got work. Clubs have made transfers and settled in to a rhythm and I want to get work! This is the best opportunity I have.
have turned out some wonderful players, the most notable is perhaps the young Gerard Deuloeu
who is shining at Everton
. I began to do some deeper research in to the club and found the current squad is so minimal I would barely get a full team out every game! What kind of manager is supposed to make this work? I suddenly realised I have begun to be very picky and stubborn with what I will have at my disposal and I began to find myself very disenchanted with the opportunity at Barcelona ‘B’
and slowly felt myself pulling away from another job yet again.
This was beginning to really anger me but I realised it is more my own doing. I could have already been in a job, managing and building my team and my reputation but I have been holding out too long. What is one more rejection?? My time in the “Job Centre” will carry on it seems.
I headed back to my hotel and told my agent that this wasn’t for me and to reject any offer that comes out of Barcelona
. Boy oh boy he wasn’t happy but he had to do what I told him. He then said that there are 4 more clubs wanting to interview me. AFC Telford in England, Beira Mar in Portugal, Colorado in the USA and Boldklubben af 1893 in Denmark
. Looks like I was about to get on a place and jet off once again to more interviews. What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just take what I get??
