I wouldn’t rule that out. Their PR entourage probably does.So you think players read redcafe prior considering joining us?
We aren’t helping things by wanting £25m for him. Let him go, get him off the books. Same with the rest.We are having trouble moving them on, that is the problem. The clubs able to afford them don't want them, and the ones who would want him won't be able to afford him.
I have been following football for 40 years, mainly the EPL and the Serie A tbh. I was raised watching Mai Dire Gol, an extremely popular TV show on national TV who literally made fun of players (their misses, their accents, the way they struggle to speak in Italian etc), reminding deadwood what they said when they first signed, ridiculing them and then calling them bidoni (rubbish can) when they left. Meanwhile throughout that time I've witnessed players who were terrified to go out after a derby defeat, LEGENDS in their prime whose finishing skills was at par to RVN, whose talent was questioned after a goal drought of 2 games, players being questioned whether they are still good enough to represent Italy months before winning the ballon d'or, ah, and Ryan Giggs type of players (without the sex scandal) being booed by his own fans in his testimonial game. That's the nice parts btw. For example Aaron Winter had to hide his Jewish origins because being black was already bad enough if you play for Lazio let alone a black guy of Jewish origins. We're talking here about Italy here, one of the safest countries in the world. We all know how Escobar was treated by Colombian fans.I wouldn’t rule that out. Their PR entourage probably does.
Journalists definitely do and they can ride on the populist views here to craft their article along the same vein to generate clicks, which then further perpetuates the confirmation bias and negativity.
