What was said…and what was meant

SergioAgueroHave you ever read a quotation from a star at Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool or another big club and wondered just what they actually meant? Well this article is for you… We go beneath the bones of what a football star says and discover what they really meant…

“Chelsea couldn’t do an offer for me last summer but now has interest in me again. I don’t know anything. I have said to my club that I am not going to move until June. After that I will see what I will do.”  Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid) means…

“Please! Please! PLEASE! Roman! Come and get me in January! Atletico are looking dreadful this season and my World Cup hopes aren’t looking too good as even my father in law prefers a 35 year old striker to me sometimes…”

“Pressure is on everyone. We have a clear aim for the season which is to get in to the top four and we have been dropping a lot of points with these draws which is not helping anyone.” Roque Santa Cruz (Manchester City) means…

“The manager must be installing an extra loo roll in the managers office seeing as he has spent more than the combined third world debt and we can’t beat Hull at home. Maybe if he picked me a bit more often it would help matters.”

“Wembley is a great day out, but I would love to get into a Champions League position with Tottenham.You can win a cup and have a bit of luck on the way, but to get to a Champions League position would be done through a whole season. It would be great for us. It is a one-off game at Wembley, a great day out for the fans. If you win it everybody enjoys it, but Tottenham won it two years ago and then went into freefall. So it didn’t do them any good.” Harry Redknapp (Tottenham Hotspurs) means…

“We’re playing the reserves in the Carling Cup quarter final at Old Trafford.”

“I thought our defending as a team was very good and that is a positive for the future, (Daniel) Agger and Carra did a very good job and we had (Javier) Mascherano and Lucas working so hard in the midfield to help the defence.” Rafa Benitez (Liverpool) means…

“We couldn’t attack to save our life, thank God for a lucky deflected shot, a fortunate rebound off their keeper and some inspired goalkeeping otherwise somebody might have asked why I am continually playing a 50% fit Steven Gerrard and a style of play that makes an evening in bed with Simon Cowell seem appealing.”

“You have to earn your luck,” David Moyes (Everton) means…

“There was no way they deserved to win. It is a travesty. Can anybody explain how professional, international class players cannot score a goal from under six yards out? No me neither…”

“The linesman has put the referee under terrible pressure,” Sir Alex Ferguson (Manchester United) means…

“Thank Goodness, it saved me the job of doing it after the match”

“Some big clubs have been mentioned for Nani, like Milan and Benfica, but there has been no contact made with us – and we wouldn’t entertain selling him anyway.” Sir Alex Ferguson (Manchester United) means…

“Roll up! Roll up! For the January Nani Sales! Any sensible offer accepted!”
