Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz has never been one to hide his true feelings on any subject. It was only a couple of weeks ago that Queiroz made a ludicrous claim that Real Madrid were trying to turn current winger Cristiano Ronaldo into the next Christopher Columbus by turning the Portuguese sensation into a Spanish product.
Well our old friend seems to be at it once again — only this time he’s telling the press that the modern-day football contract is meaningless. As for Ronaldo’s current contract? Yep, he thinks it’s pretty worthless as well.

While Queiroz’s recent rants have him looking more like “Crazy Uncle Carlos,” instead of the assistant boss at one of the biggest clubs in the world, the quote has to make you wonder if he’s actually onto something.
Which leads us to the question of the day: Do modern-day contracts really mean anything in today’s footballing world?
