Sky Sports have lost all credibility with their latest bit of quality ‘reporting’. In a wonderful bit of fiction writing they are claiming AC Milan are after Blackburn nutter Lucas Neil to replace Brazilian defender and best-right-back-ever Cafu. Of course, the actual quotes used as the basis of the article don’t even mention Milan or any of the other clubs apparently interested in the defender’s services – but Sky does end with:
“Milan are believed to be checking on prospective replacements for Brazilian veteran Cafu and Neill is believed to be one of those now under consideration.”
We imagine the ‘consideration’ went something like this:
Milan big-wig #1: How about Lucas Neill?
Milan big-wig #2: F**k off! (proceeds to beat Milan big-wig #1 with his own shoes)
