Are you illiterate? Well, clearly you're not, because otherwise you wouldn't be able to read this. But if you were, I'd be here to offer you a message of hope! See, it turns out you don't need to be able to say, write to become a highly successful football manager. You too could become :
I can't work a computer, I don't know what an email is, I can't, I have never sent a fax and I've never even sent a text message. I have a big problem, I can't write so I don't keep anything. I am the most disorganised person, I am ashamed to say, in the world.
I've never wrote a letter in my life. I couldn't write a letter. I write like a two-year-old and I can't spell. Why am I gonna fiddle 20, 30 whatever thousand pounds of income tax when I walk away six months later from £200,000 that I was due?
Defence by strategic incompetence is an interesting one. Whether it'll be enough to convince the jury of his innocence in the Tottenham Hotspur manager's ongoing tax evasion case is an open question.
