Roberto Mancini: I’d rather Manchester City players womanise than drink
For the average English football star in 2010, sexual liaisons have caused nothing but trouble. Wayne Rooney’s encounters with a prostitute have ruined his form and might still end his marriage. John Terry lost the England captaincy after allegations he had an affair with the ex of an England team mate. Peter Crouch was also publicly humiliated after betraying his pregnant fiancée in a one-night stand in Madrid.
But according to the Manchester City manager, Roberto Mancini, womanising is far preferable to drinking. Or so he advises his players.
In the lead-up to today’s match between City and Blackpool, the Italian revealed that he cannot believe the level of drinking by English players and tells them to concentrate on women instead.
“I do not understand players drinking until they are drunk. We do not have that culture in Italy. We would prefer to go off with a woman,” he said. “That’s what I liked to do after a match, and I tell my players now it is better that they go with a woman than drink.” (Guardian)
Whilst you have to applaud the Italian’s decision to make a statement decrying the need for English footballers to get tanked up during their ‘downtime’ encouraging them to instead sleep around may not be the wisest thing for the Manchester City boss to say.
He should qualify his statement but stating that employing the use of prostitutes is not what he meant and he may want to advise his multi millionaire players to steer clear of wannabe WAGS and those who like to sell their “Shag and Tell” stories to the tabloids.
