76175753.jpg‘I think I have a naive team. They are naive because they are pure and they are clean.’ Jose Mourinho, exceeding himself in the ‘they said what!?’ stakes.
‘If Chelsea are naive and pure then I’m Little Red Riding Hood.’ Rafa Benitez disagrees with Jose Mourinho’s assessment of his own side.
‘These so-called big stars are people we are supposed to be looking up to. Well they are weak and soft. If they don’t want to come because their wife wants to go shopping in London, it’s a sad state of affairs.’ Roy Keane, mincing his words again.
‘I love the big man, absolutely brilliant. Some of the films were a bit dodgy. That one where he was diving off a cliff, climbed back up to the top, his hair was immaculate and he wasn’t even wet… and for me that’s why he’s the King.’ Ian Holloway’s uniquely Hollotastic take on Elvis.
‘Anton Ferdinand on Championship Manager.’ Bobby Zamora in West Ham’s matchday programme when asked the worst thing he has ever bought. Love that Bobby!
