German defender talks sense

When your club is throwing £80million here and £62million there on new players and breaking the world transfer record becomes an almost daily activity, it is easy for a player to get carried away.

Not so for Real Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder who seems genuinely disgusted at the way his club is conducted itself.

The German said: “I don’t know much about this evolution and I’m worried about it. Spending $96m on someone that can get injured or be in bad form isn’t correct to me, especially during this period of financial uncertainty.”

That’s not Real Madrid talk, Herr Metzelder. Although to be fair, Real’s disciplinary procedure for speaking out of turn probably includes a bonus of two weeks wages!

  • Joe

    Perhaps his memory goes back more than 2 weeks.

  • Mohamed S.

    He should hand in his transfer request right about now.

  • Miggy

    Good to know there is still somebody in that club with enough sense in them.

  • Matty Dub

    good player, never played…

  • doesyourmotherknow

    i always liked him. he should grow the beard back though.

  • MarkVA

    i like him, but rumor is he is on his way out anyway. one last cheap shot at madrid? maybe.
