And, so the game continues; that perennial game whereby, as a tabloid hack; you have to second-guess who will succeed Rafa Benitez when his time as interim manager comes to an end.

Today, one leading Sunday tabloid is of the direct opinion that the successor to Rafa Benitez will be Manuel Pellegrini, the Chilean currently in charge of Malaga.

Pelligrini, no spring chicken at fifty-nine years of age, was sacked by Real Madrid to make room for a certain Jose Mourinho in the Madrid hot-seat.

Offering up some kind of proof that they`ve got this one nailed, the tabloid paper goes on to inform us that Pelligrini has been having English lessons in preparation for his switch to Stamford Bridge.

We`re saying nothing but we`d appreciate your thoughts on this one!
