It does appear to be a case of sensationalism. The company GF Biochemicals recently raised 15 million in their series A. I assume this would give it a market cap between 50-100 million euros. If Flamini was worth 14 billion, the company would likely be worth over 30 billion which would almost certainly make it a major european biotech company - say 1/3rd of Gilead or 1/5th of Amgen or half of Moderna's market cap - and based on what we know it isn't.Has that ever been truely established that he is the richest player? Seemed like sensationalism.
What is the point of being on radio then if no one can understand him?Listening to TalkSports breakfast show last week, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone quite as stupid as the ‘Romford Pele’ aka Ray Parlour. The guy couldn’t string a single coherent sentence together in English.
Bamford ended up with five A*s, three As and two Bs in his GCSEs. He studied French, History, Biology and General Studies at A-Level and attained 3 Bs and a C. Bamford was offered a place at Harvard University and on the Harvard Men's Soccer team, but he rejected the offer to continue his career in England.
Budget Arturo VidalRadja Nainggolan is surely up there, and I'm not just basing that on the fact that he's sabotaged his own career so many times by smoking and just being a dick in general. Apparently he's a genuine idiot all the way through.
Ousmane Dembele seems like a "lights are on but no-one's home" type in interviews, but that might be a wrong assumption.
Luke Shaw and Wan Bissaka would be my bet. It would be much harder to figure out who the intelligent (as in brain not football brain) players are but I'd guess Mata, Cavani, Fernandes and Pogba would be super intelligent guys.So, that means United's first team has, what, 3 or 4 really dumb players.
Who are they?
Regardless of whether Bamford is intelligent or not, I think his socio-economic background and going to an expensive/good public school raises the likelihood of getting good grades because more resources are invested to prepare students at such schools. He definitely received a better education than most footballers.Anyone who says Bamford, well the lad night play for Leeds but sure has a good noggin (despite what his club allegiances would tell you)
Nonetheless he doesn't act or speak stupid things, if you look at his interviews in recent years you see a thoughtful man.Grealish is the first one that came to mind out of the current footballers.
Also, how has no one mentioned Rooney? Bloke looks like if he wasn’t involved in football, he would be the human equivalent of Patrick Star from SpongeBob.
if you go to another country to play football/work you learn the language, plenty of british/Irish players who have went overseas have learned the local language. Some fluent, some enough to get by, same with players who come to play in the UK, not all know the language fluently.This is a weird thread, honestly. And from folks who have been crying about Qatar? I make me laugh.
Anyone who can learn another country's language, having never lived there u till football is smart.
How many English guys can speak other languages apart from English?

Probably the best example is Wayne Rooney, he's currently managing in America and speaks fluent American.
