Portuguese Man Files £10m Lawsuit Against Baptist Church For Ruining His Chances Of Playing For Man Utd

A man who never managed to get beyond the Portuguese third division during his semi-professional playing career is suing the Baptist church for £10 million, claiming that becoming a ‘fervent evangelist’ at the age of 25 stymied his chances of playing for Manchester United.

Now aged 46, Arquimedes Nganga (great name) has filed a lawsuit in the high court against the Baptist Union of Great Britain, claiming he’s owed back payment on the £200,000-a-week wages which he could have – but, crucially from a ‘legal defence’ standpoint, didn’t earn for the last five years of his career.

“I could definitely have had a long career in the Premiership,” said Nganga, who never earned more than £200 a month during his playing days.

“I see many players playing today who I am not inferior to – and perhaps even better than. Most midfielders are either defensive or attacking, but I was both. I had something new.”

    ………. hhhmmm? ……. I might sue Sainsbury’s.

    The good Customer Service skills I developed as a kid ruined my chances of becoming a member of N-Sync.

    You could sue Scunthorpe United…

    Can someone bitch slap this man? What a fucking waste of court time. I hope the court fines him 200,000 for wasting their time.

    I get paid for not playing.

  7. Lanthanum says:

    ‘A man who never managed to get beyond the Portuguese third division during his semi-professional playing career’ sounds suspiciously like Andre Villas-Boas to me. Might as well attempt to claim 10 million quid now that he’s out of a job.
