Mackay: 'Not respectful to comment on other jobs'
We've seen this all before with Brendan Rodgers, and we certainly don't want to lose another manager to a slightly better off club amongst a web of lies.
That Malky Mackay has yet to come out and distance himself from the vacant manager's job at struggling Burnley nor re-affirm his love for Watford Football Club is worrying.
Speaking to the The Watford Observer Mackay was not giving anything away:
"I don't think it is respectful for me to comment on other jobs. I am the manager of this club right now."
The former Scotland international has also confirmed the club is yet to receive an approach for him.
Whether or not an approach is in the offing or not, we could bounce back from any departure as we have done in the past, picking up rough diamonds in Mackay himself, Brendan Rodgers and Aidy Boothroyd over recent years.
Afterall, if the club is to survive for future generations player trading, or for that matter, manager trading is integral. If a good compensation package is agreed, who knows?
