Martin O'Neill Had A Fantastically Blunt Response When Asked If He Wanted The Villa Job

Martin O'Neill Had A Fantastically Blunt Response When Asked If He Wanted The Villa Job
By Gavin Cooney

Following the dismissal of the Premier League's chief custodian of misery - Remi 'what seems to be the problem' Garde - Sky Sports despatched an intrepid reporter to the Aviva to ask Martin O'Neill whether he was interested in taking the job once again. Speculation about managerial positions are one of the favoured topics of Sky Sports News - it is partly a reason so many managers are sacked - so their editors evidently assumed it was a question worth asking.
