The £3.5mill walkaway

on Thu 19 Jan 2017, 12:49 pm
Sporting Gijon manager Abelardo resigned from his position earlier and refused his £3.5mill payout 

Quote:
"As a Sporting fan, even though I had a contract until 2020, I couldn’t do that to the club I love. I did the same at other clubs and it wasn’t going to be any different here. I don’t have a problem writing off the money. There are more important things, loyalty to my club above all,” Abelardo said of his gesture. 

In spite of wide-scale Spanish corruption, how many British managers would do that for the club they proclaim to love? Nice to see what decent humans do.

It is magnanimous but how many managers are managing the club they support and where they were born.
Most of the prem are foreign boys.
