Word of mouth (II)
“Real Madrid are now the best team in the world. Zidane won everything as a player and as a coach, he is a special guy. When you think of football, you think of Zidane because he could do anything on the pitch. It’s magical.”
– Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, with one eye on the next transfer window.
“We can’t say that Maradona was a great header. He didn’t score goals with headers. And we cannot say Maradona shot very well with both feet, because he didn’t shoot with his right, only mainly with his left. For me he was a great player, it’s just that you can’t compare Maradona with Pele.” – Eh, Pele. “I’d take the right foot of Cristiano Ronaldo, the left foot of Diego Armando Maradona, the vision of Messi, the technique of Zidane. And I’d take the shot of Totti.”
– Francesco Totti finishes off his perfect player with himself.
“I know how to be a dickhead. It’s one of my specialties. It’s a little game. When I want to piss everyone off, I do it. My managers understood that: when I sulk, they talk to me. It’s a way for me to be heard. Those who know me play along, and, in the end, it goes well.”
– Well, at least Dimitri Payet’s honest.
