Word of mouth (I)

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

“No, I have kids – if I do that my son is go­ing to do the same. I have to have se­ri­ous hair, like Gary Neville.” Ne­manja Matic rul­ing out the pos­si­bil­ity of him get­ting a non-se­ri­ous hair-do like Paul Pogba’s.

“He scores more goals in games than I do in train­ing.” Bayern Mu­nich striker San­dro Wag­ner pre­views his Cham­pi­ons League semi-fi­nal meet­ing with Cris­tiano Ron­aldo with no lit­tle trep­i­da­tion.

“Ev­ery­one re­ally likes the hype around Mo, all the boys. When we came out for train­ing be­fore Man City, I said, ‘come on every­body, let’s go out naked be­cause no one will re­alise – they are just look­ing at Mo!’.”

Jur­gen Klopp. He’s prob­a­bly right too, not even nu­di­eness would take our eyes off Mo.

“How can Ney­mar not be there for the ti­tle game? How can he look at his team-mates in the eyes by be­hav­ing like that? He is spit­ting on the club. I think it’s bar­baric.” For­mer French in­ter­na­tional Christophe Du­garry, a touch peeved by Ney­mar opt­ing to play on­line poker back in Brazil while the PSG lads were win­ning the ti­tle. His heart isn’t in the Parisian project, one sus­pects.
