McLeish’s wife made him e-mail Brum his resignation

NEWLY-unveiled Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has explained why he e-mailed his resignation to rival team Birmingham City – he was being threatened by his wife.
At his first press conference for his new club, he fielded a question about the e-mailed notice which caused a huge stir a few weeks ago.
He said: “We live in modern world and I did follow it up with a hard copy. I did say to my wife after we had been on holiday for two or three days that maybe I should deliver the letter to them face-to-face.
“She said there was no way I was leaving this holiday destination so soon, or I’d be hit with a rolling pin.”
So there you have it – but of course, his wife’s rolling pin might pale by comparison now, as the Scot has also said he has received death threats for accepting the role at Villa.

  1. One must assume that he was holidaying in a country that hasn’t got round to installing telephones then. Coward’s act to resign that way, and a cowards act to hide behind his wife, which goes quite nicely with his football tactics.
