Football is a funny old game and here are some choice words from the week gone by. Lets begin in Italy…
Juventus fans seem to have have a slight dislike towards Inter striker Mario Balotelli, “Se saltelli, muore Balotelli” or “If you jump, Balotelli dies.” I wouldn’t want to be Super Mario right now.
Quickly lambasted, “I am against any kind of insults,” added Juve boss Ciro Ferrara. However, this is not racism according to Italian U21 coach Pierluigi Casiraghi, “It is not an issue of racism, it’s just his personality that grates on people.” So he’s just an annoying little so and so.
“Now I hope they keep on saying I’m past it, as it brings me luck. Go on, say I’m finished as a player!”
Francesco Totti after scoring a hat-trick against Bari for AS Roma on his return from knee surgery. Are you going to tell him he’s finished?
Gary Neville doesn’t like all these overpaid prima donnas, “A player doesn’t need to pay between five and 15% of his wages to a guy to buy him a new fridge,” hasn’t he heard of online shopping, you get free next-day delivery if you play your cards right Gary!
You can always rely on Keano to tell it like it is.
Patrice Evra has thought of the best way to solve football’s great debate, “The replay? I’ll do it when you want on a PlayStation.” Evra should take that idea to FIFA, but this… “Henry? We should make a statue of him.” Maybe in front of the Irish Embassy in Paris perhaps? Silly boy indeed.
Amr Zaki is no longer going to Portsmouth, “I refused their offer before, but now joining Portsmouth is no longer an option for me,” Zaki said. But why Amr, why?
“After Portsmouth signed an Israeli player and also hired an Israeli football director (Avram Grant), a possible move was ruled out. On top of that, no way could I play at Portsmouth with an Algerian within in their ranks.”
There we are folks, Adolf Hitler reincarnate.
Fernando Gago’s agent, Marcelo Lombilla has most definitely taken away any pride the Argentinean has. When questioned on his clients future at Real Madrid, he retorted, “It’s not a question of money, what Gago wants is match rhythm, because the World Cup is getting close and he wants Maradona to pick him for the squad.” That’s fair enough Marcelo, everyone wants to play, so does Gago train extra hard?
Nope… “It’s no good for me to have a player who is not happy with his club. When Gago is not playing. He stays at home crying.” The modern footballer ladies and gentlemen.
After letting the football world down, Thierry Henry has some choice words. “There was a generation that needed me. Despite everything that has just happened and the fact that I felt let down (by the French FA), I will not let my country down.” But you cheated! You let everyone else down Thierry.
