‘My Eight-Year-Old Grandson Has Better Co-Ordination Than Andy Carroll’ – Poland Legend Zbigniew Boniek

By Chris Wright

With England playing Poland in Warsaw tonight, the man who is currently favourite to succeed Grzegorz Lato as the president of the Polish football association, Zbigniew Boniek, has fired the first shot across the bows, claiming that his eight-year-old grandson is already a better player than Andy Carroll.

The former Juventus forward, now 56, who top-scored for Poland while leading his country on their way to third place at the 1982 World Cup, told a Polish television show: “My grandson Mateo moves better on the pitch than Andy Carroll and he has better co-ordination.”

It’s hard to argue with that. ‘Zibi’ wasn’t a bad player himself and if young Mateo’s inherited even a smidge of his Grandad’s ability then we think the Bonieks may well be right on this occasion…

    But this is England Mr Boniek, we prize certain key physical attributes. Andrew is big Mr Boniek. Is your Grandson as big? If he is as big, then does he carry that height mostly in the neck? Is your grandson like a mental springer spaniel jumping up at shadows Mr Boniek? No? I didn’t think so, then as good as he is Mr Boniek don’t send him over to England to join the academy system. He won’t make it. Now jog on.

    Boniek? Who is this? Never heard of that guy. And Polish football is crap anyway.

  3. Milkchew says:

    He should just shut up and build a wall.

  4. Stiopa says:

    Wynton, If u don’t know who Boniek is, you should shut up.

  5. Applesauce says:

    ^Seriously. Boniek is arguably better than any English player that ever existed.

    With that said, it was obviously a pretty ridiculous statement that Andy Carroll could use as motivation.

    Thats a really boring ‘top 10′ lol
