Cobh Ramblers Deny Manuel Pellegrini Move After Man City Manager’s Visit

Cobh Ramblers Deny Manuel Pellegrini Move After Man City Manager’s Visit

Cobh Ramblers were today forced to deny rumours that Manuel Pellegrini is set to become their next manager.

That’s definitely one of the most unusual sentences we’ve had to write this weekend.

It’s a great little story which is getting interest from several news websites in Ireland.

It seems Pellegrini was simply holidaying in the Irish town on the south coast of Cork and was not there in any footballing capacity.
