    Poetry corner: Lines on the PSG coaching job

    So farewell then Antoine Kombouaré.
    You may have been a decent player,
    You may have done well at Valenciennes,
    But you were never the 'name' the Qataris wanted.
    Let's face it;
    Your goose was cooked as soon as the sale was complete.
    With your team top of the league.
    That sucks.

    So hello Carlo Ancelotti
    And your permanently raised eyebrow.
    You now have to make PSG play sexy football
    Which isn't something you've ever done elsewhere.
    It may be handy to learn the Arabic
    Word for 'catenaccio'.
    You seem a likeable chap
    But it'll still be funny
    If you don't win anything.
    Sorry about that.
