Mike Phelan had no idea he was Hull City manager before getting fired yesterday, he has confirmed.
Getting sacked came as a complete surprise to Phelan as did the fact that he had been manager for their last 54 games.
Phelan said: “Imagine how embarrassing this is for me. I mean… Hull are proper sh*t! I must have had a really heavy night when I agreed to take the job.
“If I had known I was manager I would have probably tried to make them a bit less crap. But… you know… polishing a turd and all that.”
Phelan is said to be considering legal action against the club for the damage done to his reputation.
