Rene Meulensteen may've talked his way out of a role with Fulham.
The Daily Mail says Meulensteen went against his advisors in speaking with the media after his removal as manager on Friday.
It seems so bruised was Meulensteen's ego, after just 75 days in charge, that he chose to go on the offensive when there was still a job for him at the club.
If this all sounds familiar, it is because there were echoes of this with Meulensteen's departure from Old Trafford last summer. Manchester United insist David Moyes offered him the assistant manager's job.
Meulensteen continues to claim otherwise.
