We have to admit that we don’t know too much about Alan Pardew’s family, even though he’s been at Newcastle for over three years now, but it seems that his two daughters are the ones responsible for their Dad punishing himself by doing some community service after his foul-mouthed rant at Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini during last weekend’s game.
Alan Pardew rant at Manuel Pellegrini
It turns out his two daughters were not too happy – make that very very shocked – with their Dad’s performance during his tirade, and have persuaded him to do some good in and for the community to make up for it.
This is what the Newcastle manager said about his situation:
“There are a couples of things I would like to do outside my work hours in the local community. I have heard from John Carver there are a couple of Boys’ Clubs struggling and I am going to do something with a housing association in Walker.
“That will be my penance to my two girls, who are a little bit miffed about my behavior. They were very, very shocked. We don’t have a swear jar at home. I will just say my two daughters made it clear to me, ‘Daddy. Not appropriate, Daddy’.”
This puts a little bit of a human face on the situation – and it’s good that Alan is doing some good in the local community.
Good for him.
Now to hammer West Ham today, and please Alan – no rants at big Sam. 😀
