Well done to Tribal Football for first reporting on Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini’s vain attempts to get membership of a local golf club.
Apparently Pellegrini is a very keen golfer and applied to join Hale Golf Club as soon as he took the City job. Hale may be only a nine hole course with a £1,245 joining fee and £925 annual sub but they did not immediately accept Pellegrini’s membership application, instead putting the Chilean on a waiting list.
The club has 500 members and with over 300 of those active adults; there may be a considerable wait for the 60 year old.
The question is will he stay in the job long enough to tee it up!
