Word of mouth (I)
“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.
