    Sean Connor finds someone that will employ him... but you'll never guess where!

    CAPS United to unveil Irishman as new coach

    HARARE- CAPS United have settled for a European touch to try and end half-a-dozen years of waiting for league championship glory, with Northern Irishman, Sean Connor, set to be unveiled as the new head coach of the Green Machine.
    Link
    That was an unexpected turn of events to say the least. He'll find it difficult to organise pre-season friendlies within spitting distance of his gaff this year...

    I wouldn't wish him on anyone.

    Just over 2 years ago the bould Seanie called my old boss for a job. he had an introduction from another header from Ireland. After a 15minute conversation my boss hung up, looked at me and asked "He does speak english, yes?" Mugabe beware!!!

    Most of his attempts to be "smart" while he was with United (that I know of) were thwarted, apart from the whole alleged writing his own contract thing.

    Seany's offer letter has been leaked on the internet

    Dr. Akeem Biobaku Ph.D C.R.P.

    CAPS UNITED FOOTBALLING CLUP , HARARE - ZIMBABWE
    TEL/FAX 234 90 408550
    234 90 408674

    REQUEST FOR URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP


    Dear Mister Conners,

    First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and "Top Secret". You have been recommended by an associate who assured me in confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a pending footaballing transaction of great magnitude, requiring maximum confidence.

    We are top officials of the CAPS UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB panel who are interested in the importation of footballing peoples into our country with funds which are presently confined in Zimbabwe. In order to commence this business, we solicit your assistance to enable us to transfer into your account, lots and lots of money funds.

    The following represents the source of the funds. During the last regime here in CAPS UNITED, the coaching team awarded themselves contracts which were grossly over invoiced in various ministries which informed the setting up of the Contract Review Panel by the present Military Government to advice on the aforementioned. We have identified a lot of inflated contract sums which are presently floating in the Central Bank of Zimbabwe ready for payment, amongst which is the said sum of US$31,320,000 (Thirty One Million, Three-Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars) that we solicit your assistance for the transfer. As we are unable to manage the transfer all by ourselves because it it lots and lots of monies and it will be too heavy, I have therefore been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues on the Panel to solicit for an overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the said sum.

    We have agreed to share the money thus:

    1. 65% for the Account Owner (you)
    2. 25% for us (The Officials)
    3. 10% to be used in settling all expenses (our end and your end). Incidental to the realization of this transaction.

    As a token of our appreciation to you, we shall make available to you at less than market price as much as 500,000 barrels of Automotive Gas Oil for spot lift. And 1,000 young ladies for the sexual harassments.

    We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction. Please send us the following information IMMEDIATELY, and then we can draw up your professional contract, and you will be selected as to the managing coach of CAPS UNITED of Harare, Zimbabwe, and you will immediately receive lots and lots of monies (see above) into your bank account:

    1. Your Name and Address
    2. Your Bank Account Details
    3. Your Sort Code


    Yours Faithfully,

    Dr. Akeem Biobaku,
    Chairman,
    CAPS UNITED,
    Zimbabwe

    It hasn't gone too well.. he has already been moved away from the first team and into a ceremonial role: http://www.herald.co.zw/index.php?op...ticle&id=39709

    The club’s management is set to concede today that they made a monumental error of judgment to hand Connor full charge of the team given his lack of experience with football in Africa.

    This cant have been a good move for the guy in hindsight, what was he ever going to achieve out there to be honest. The best he could do now is try and make some contacts for players later on.
    The SFAI are the governing body for grassroots football in Ireland, not the FAI. Its success or the lack of is all down to them.
