The £3.5mill walkaway

Postby daib0 » 19 Jan 2017, 13:46

Sporting Gijon manager Abelardo resigned from his position earlier and refused his £3.5mill payout

"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.
