Arsenal striker, Eduardo, made a massive mark on his club in his first match since coming back from an horrific ankle injury. But even with the pain behind him, the Brazilian-born player says there’s still something that bothers him. That would be the fact that Birmingham’s Martin Taylor has still not apologised to the striker for the incident.
”Some friends told me he was saying he’d spoken to me – but he never did. I’ve never met him,” said Eduardo. “And someone at Arsenal received an email from him when I played for the reserves at Barnet a short while back and it said he was pleased I was playing again.
”I have received lots of mail from other people. I’ve had around 25,000 emails – from Croatia, Brazil and England – wishing me a speedy recovery and I’ve had letters by the sack-full. But he’s never sent anything directly to me.” (ESPN Soccernet)
Other reports say that Taylor was at the hospital, but that Eduardo was under heavy medication when he came by. Regardless, this story appears to still be running on fumes. If this was such a big issue now, wouldn’t it make more sense for Taylor to just give him a call and give his apology through an interpreter if the language barrier is the only issue? It would make sense; plus, it would put this whole issue to bed.
