Word of mouth (II)

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

“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.
