S’Alex Ferguson has been given a rollocking for throwing a chain around Cristiano Ronaldo’s neck and turning him into a footballing dancing bear; and FIFA Ubermeister Sepp Blatter has had enough of this disgusting behaviour.
The Sun quotes Blatter’s rant on Sky Sports news, suffice to say that The Seppmeister is definitely on the player’s side:
“In football there’s too much modern slavery.
“I’m always in favour of protecting the player. If he wants to leave, let him.
“If Ronaldo stays at a club where he does not feel comfortable to play then it’s not good for him or the club.
“The important thing is that we should also protect the player.
“And if they want to play somewhere else, then a solution should be found.”
Speaking on Sky News, Blatter added: “There is this slavery in transferring or buying players here and there — and putting them somewhere. We’re trying now to intervene in such cases. (The Sun)
This is just another drip in the incessant Chinese Water Torture transfer saga that is Ronaldo’s mooted move to Real Madrid – when will it end?
