Burley aloud to speak to SFA

Burley aloud to speak to SFA

Saints today have accepted the approach from the SFA for Burley.

Leon Crouch said it was a 'reluctant decision' and Burley commented: 'I am very happy at St.Mary's' to the saints offical website.

This move looks like it could work out for all 3 parties, Burley could get to take charge of his national team, The SFA would have a manager they rated and Southampton get money and a chance to move on to a new era, as the Burley era seems to be heading nowhere.

More to follow!

I never understand these decisions. Your man Crouch says he was "reluctant", Burley is reportadly happy ..... so why not tell the SFA to sod off??!!??

Probably because Crouch isn't reluctant but quietly delighted and Burley isn't happy at all - but it "suits their chops" to put a front on for the media.

Suits everybody if he went to Scotland with GB out of contract at the end of the season. He won't get the Scotland job.

TV reports today suggest that Burley is the SFA's preferred candidate and the Scotland job, should Burley want it, is very much in the bag.
