BAD-MOUTHING a town you have just moved to is not usu­ally the best way to en­dear your­self to the lo­cals, but for Bastien Hery it earned him a tour of Rochdale.

The French mid­fielder, 22, says com­ments in which he al­legedly called the town a “dump” were wrongly trans­lated and was quick to make amends when Rochdale coun­cil­lor Janet Em­s­ley showed him the sights.

“I re­ally en­joyed see­ing the build­ings, both the old and the new, as they are very im­pres­sive,” said Hery.“I would never say any­thing bad about Rochdale – be­fore last week I did not even know what the word ‘dump’ meant.”
