The Truth about Goats
Despite parting company with West Bromwich Albion, Tony Pulis is expected to take over at fellow strugglers, Zimbabwe, to help them avoid being relegated to the Third World – or The Championship as it is called. Pulis has a reputation of hanging on long past his sell-by-date and fraudulently claiming payments – which makes him an ideal replacement for Robert Mugabe.
The careers of both men have been similar, with both making a stand against colonial rule – be it the shackles of white minority Government or working for Peter Coates at Stoke. Ironically, Pulis was sacked by WBA without a win in 10 games, while Mugabe is being impeached with only 1 win in 37 years.
Meanwhile, outgoing boss, Robert Mugabe is said to be considering his options – with years of corruption on his CV; making him ideal for a top FIFA post. Friends close to Mr. Mugabe say he is unwilling to run another struggling economy, blighted by racial tensions and poor sanitation – which rules out the Wales job.
Pulis is expected to cross the Limpopo River under cover of darkness, bringing his tough brand of economic stability set-plays and Jake Livermore to the capital Harare. A friend said: ‘This will be a challenge for Tony, Zimbabwe has one of the lowest life expectancies on the planet, but it can’t be worse than playing for Bristol Rovers’.
