As others pointed out, just makes his claims to be closer to home even more bullshit. 

Wish he'd have been more honest and said he threw a strop cause he didn't get backed, or that he was chasing the bag.

100% because he wasn't backed exactly how he wanted.

There was only so much front loaded investment we could do to be honest. Glad we don't need to think about him anymore.

In terms of his managerial career, that’s a suicidal move.

He was rotten at Villa, but he probably had enough equity to get one more job in England to prove himself.

Chasing the money to manage in Saudi, just kills whatever credibility and reputation as a manager he had left. He could go there and have a 100% win record and people will still consider it, and him, a total joke for going there to begin with.

It must be a pretty small list in terms  of managerial names who go to the Middle East and come back to Europe and then do well again.

Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s taking the payday before moving into punditry

Interesting timing to be moving from the UK to the middle east.

Always thought there was more to Gerrard's involvement with that.

Always been rumours about it, sure one of them are even dating his daughter?

That's the guy that was arrested in the past week isn't it - the dad?

He was hiding out in Dubai.

So if there was to be, say, a big news criminal case coming up in the UK with celebrity involvement, you might suddenly think your UK managerial credentials are cooked for a bit?
