A Second-Tier English Soccer Team Just Hired A Coach With Twitter Tourette’s
November 19 / Rick Chandler / SportsGrid
Well, this should be fun. Wigan Athletic, which resides in the Football League Championship (second tier) of English soccer, has a new coach -- a guy named Malky Mackay, who's quite the controversial chap over there. Much rending of garments and gnashing of teeth over this hire, because Mackay is currently under investigation by the Football Association for being a racist douchebag.
And when we say that, we're being rather kind. Observe:
"The FA now needs to move swiftly to let everybody know whether they agree with Wigan's position or whether they will reinforce their own zero-tolerance stance on all such matters of equality and diversity."
Malky Mackay must be laughing all the way to the bank. Self confessed racist and he still walks into job paying him thousands a week!
