“I am the happiest manager in the world right now,” Fran Alonso

Fran Alonso described himself as the happiest manager in the world right now in his post match interview but the way things are going up at Pittodrie, where Aberdeen currently lead theRangers (with 75 mins played), Ange Postecoglou might be saying ‘haw’d ma jaikit’ or whatever the equivalent Aussie expression is. If things stay as they are in that game then the Coronation Title Win is ON as Celtic can win the league in the first match after the split just as £100million  is being spent on some self-entitled, work shy divorcee.

Alonso’s side came out on top in what was a tough semi-final battle this afternoon with the only goal of the game being scored by the ‘Goal Machine’ Natasha Flint and what an important signing she has been.

“I need a nap. That was extremely, extremely stressful. It was a proper fifty-fifty game. I thought we were unlucky in the first half, I thought that we were the better team, I need to see Amy’s goal again as I thought it was onside, but I need to re-assess it from a different angle but I am very happy with the performance in the first half,” Alonso told Celtic TV after the match at Hampden.

“Then in the second half it was all about suffering, about trying to create something if we can and about managing the game and I felt that the Ghirls were fantastic against a superb side. I have to mention Pam. We knew we were playing against the league leaders and knew is wasn’t going to be as comfortable as it was in the last game against them, when we were absolutely superb.

“Today was a proper fifty-fifty game and I think some of the save that Pam made were outstanding and at the end I have to be delighted because it could have gone either way and we are the ones who booked a ticket to the final.

“Credit to Glasgow City because I thought that was an incredible show for women’s football and I’m absolutely delighted to be able to book the ticket to the final. So proud, an especial mention to our fans, over a thousand tickets sold, for the whole game they were supporting use they were singing, they lifted us up.

“So fantastic day which the players enjoyed. They will now get two days off. They have had three games in a week and three wins which is incredible. I am so proud of them. It is not easy. From outside you can sometimes judge but those Ghirls have been training like you cannot imagine, the work-rate, how hard we push them so to come out of the most important week of the season with three wins against City, Hearts then City, all the games away from home, is incredible.

“I am the happiest manager in the world right now. I cannot wait to come back here.”
