Manuel Pellegrini confident staff won’t notice four-hour afternoon nap

Pellegrini

Insisting that he had adequately prepared for all eventualities that may occur, Manuel Pellegrini today expressed confidence that staff at the Etihad Campus wouldn’t notice his four-hour afternoon nap.

Slowly reclining in his chair and putting on his specially-purchased fake glasses, the Chilean coach prepared to rest his head after what he described as a “hectic” hour of watching his players train out of his office window.

“It could be touch and go but I feel I have everything in place to make it through and come out the other end rejuvenated and refreshed,” said the former Real Madrid manager, adding that he has made four-hour naps a crucial part of his daily routine since announcing he would be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season.

“I’ve put a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on my door and besides, these glasses look totally legit so I’m not worried either way. It’s pretty unreasonable for them to ask me come in on a Thursday anyway to be honest.”

At press time, a sleeping Pellegrini was said to be smiling contently to himself while dreaming about the current situation in which he has found himself.
