It’s our own fault that footballers trot out the same cliched bullocks in interviews today, as their fear of a social media backlash is all too real.
The over the top reactions, the abuse and ease of access that is now available to all footballers means that we won’t get a: “Fuck me, we were shit” or “Yep, the manager is a twat, so I want to leave”.
Propaganda is sickeningly rife, as you’d expect, when it comes to official club lines and the latest interview on Manchester United’s official website conducted with Anthony Martial reaches new levels of sycophantic horseshit.
In amongst all the spiel and waffle, let’s take a look at what the Red Devils’ summer signing really meant…
TRANSLATION: “I blame Patrice Evra for everything.”
TRANSLATION: “Like you lot will let me say Thierry Henry is my idol. I suppose you want me to say someone like David Bellion, don’t you?”
TRANSLATION: “Schneiderlin won’t leave me alone.”
TRANSLATION: “I got fucked up last night with Fellaini; he’s crazy and loves a jägerbomb!”
TRANSLATION: “When you see someone like Rooney, you instantly feel better about yourself.”
