Ex-Tottenham Hardman Graham Roberts To Manage Pakistan

By Alan Duffy

 

Much has been said about the lack of English managers and indeed players with foreign experience. However, in a bid to redress that imbalance, former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts has decided to go all the way to Pakistan to improve his coaching CV.

The tough-tackling star of Tottenham’s FA Cup and UEFA Cup-winning sides of the eighties, has accepted the job after initially signing a two-month deal for a consultancy role.

Roberts’ only previous managerial experience came with Yeovil Town and Clyde and he faces a rather big challenge in his new position, with Pakistan currently 162nd in the FIFA World Rankings.

Hopefully Roberts will bring with him a better understanding of the country’s religious and political history (not to mention a bit more tact) than he did in his time with Rangers in Scotland.

    Roberts has managed a lot more clubs than Yeovil Town and Clyde. It’s just that the press only looked at wikipedia when they published the stories. We’ve been keeping an eye on his clubs since he left Yeovil Town and he’s done jobs for at least four more clubs.
