Tugay To Become Coach At Man City

Tugay To Become Coach At Man City

Rovers legend Tugay has told the media in his homeland that he is going to be working in a coaching capacity at Man City.

The maestro bid Blackburn Rovers farewell in the last game of the season a few weeks back and was told he could not be a coach at Rovers until he is fully qualified such is the way Allardyce works. However, he has now been told he can work at Man City.

Tugay will work under Mark Hughes, whom he played for at Ewood Park for 3 and a half years.

Tugay, speaking to NTV in Turkey said -'I made an agreement with Manchester City and will work as a coach,'

'To work there will be a huge step for me. When I feel strong enough, then I will begin to work as a technical director.'

I am sure we all wish Tugay the very best at City and will welcome him back to Ewood when the time is right.

Indeed all the best to Tugay but I can't help but feel a little disappointed that he isn't doing his coaching at Rovers, silly move by BFS.

HOW and/or WHY we didn't get him involved with the coaching set-up at Ewood Park and have allowed the Maestro to join a rival Premier League side is beyond me!!!

aye Sam was clear about it, your either qualified or your not part of the coaching squad, fair enough i think, sure tugay is a legend, and im sure he has a lot to offer, but at the moment, we need a solid, experienced back room staff to guide our squad

he will be with us at some point. Sam will offer him a role when he is qualified and a position is available. I personally dont think this is as bad as we are making out!
