Great keeper In need of a therapist?
Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc has admitted that his personal life affected his performances last season.
“Never mind if you are a worker in a factory or you are a goalkeeper playing in front of thousands of people every week,” he said.
“If you have personal problems, it will affect you at work.”
Boruc was targeted by the Northern Ireland fans at Windsor Park but claims the abuse had nothing to do with him conceding two poor goals.
“My form in the match in Belfast when Poland lost 3-2 to Northern Ireland and the earlier game in Bratislava, when we lost 2-1 to Slovakia, was related to my personal situation,” he told the Polish media.
“In Belfast, I wasn’t scared of the Northern Ireland fans’ taunting. I like pressure. I like when the fans are screaming at me. (BBC Sport)
We always suspected that Mr. Boruc was a little on the insane side of the mental spectrum, this fact is further supported by his Friday Rants. Of course Goalkeepers are supposed to be crazy, it’s part of their genetic make-up or something.
On a serious note, Artur makes a good point that many of us will do well to remember. Personal problems are indeed personal problems and are just as damaging if your a millionaire footballer or a penniless vagrant, I guess the main difference however is the fact that the Polish International can recover from such woes by ordering himself a series of high class hookers to help him to get over his messy divorce!
