It is reported that former Liverpool assistant manager, Pako Ayesteran is a target to be the next assistant manager at Manchester United. I was initially shocked at the suggestion of this but I have sat down to think it through. Firstly, Pako left Liverpool under bad terms with Rafa. The two did not seem to be getting along anymore after many years of being close friends. I wonder was seriously good have caused two close friends to part ways? But such is life and it happened and I remember clearly that when Pako left, we started going through a bad patch of results.

Now it is unheard off a players switching between Liverpool and Manchester United. Pako may not be a player but it will feel the same. Pako has known Rafa for many years and clearly knows how Rafa thinks and what tactics he uses. Now this will be valuable information for Sir Alex. On the other hand, what if Rafa and Pako have kissed and made up; it may not be a bad idea to have Pako in the enemy camp. Pako could tell Rafa about all that is happening at Manchester United and that could be at our advantage. I am not a fan of ‘under ground’ tactics but this is a possibility. This will be something similar to the McLaren and Ferrari Formula 1 spying saga.

I guess we just have to wait and see how this one unfolds.
