Connolly relieved of position

FC Sklep Guardiola have parted company with manager Matthew Connolly, although the club insist it is a temporary leave-of-absence to allow him to fulfill his league committee obligations.

After the club were only able to finish runners-up during a season in which they were the pre-season favourites for the league - a status they seemed to be well in control of justifying for most of the campaign - many pundits were tipping Connolly's tenure at Miesiączka Łąka to come to an end.

The club, however, made it very clear that, "Matthew Connolly has progressed this side fantastically this season and we thank him for his work towards an excellent second place finish. We now relieve him temporarily so he can pursue his administrative duties on the league committee throughout what is likely to be a busy summer.

"He is a credit to the organisation and a very enthusiastic man - whilst many other managers will be away on well-earned holidays, Connolly will be working hard to ensure the league's operation is carried through with the utmost thoroughness.

"We look forward to welcoming him back to the club with open arms after he has completed his obligations to the league."

Of course, whilst such a statement will surely appease any immediate fears over a sacking due to lack of silverware, many-a-manager in the past has lost their position following a similar vote of confidence from their board.

Matthew Connolly himself was unavailable for comment, with the Pole understood to already be on his way to PESGaming Fantasy League headquarters for an appraisal meeting with the rest of the committee.
