Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has sprung to the defence of England colleague Wayne Rooney, saying people who call him thick are actually thick themselves.
Lampard said people make “lazy” assumptions on Rooney based on his background and the fact that he is a footballer.
“I think the people who are calling him thick have got a certain element of thickness about them, because they haven’t even invested the time to speak to him. He doesn’t speak to the press that much for them to make that judgement of him.”
Is that an open invitation, Frank?
So you are thick if you think Rooney’s thick because you haven’t invested the time to talk to him, but you can’t talk to him because he doesn’t talk to the press that much.
Glad we got that cleared up.
