Gigi Becali, owner of Romanian outfit Steaua Bucharest, is fast establishing his reputation as football’s most reliable rent-a-quote. He is now spewing outlandish statements on at least a weekly basis.
Take his latest outburst, for instance. Now, Becali has an interesting faith. It’s a very warped take on devout Christianity in which the Holy Trinity are God, Jesus and Gigi (not necessarily in that order).
So, what did Gigi have to say – it was inevitable he would have something to say -about the news that FC Dinamo president Cristian Borcea is to divorce his wife and marry a model?
He said it was “fine by God” because:
“A man can choose. As God said: man is man and woman is whore.”
He also offered to help as a “spiritual advisor” at the wedding due to his “connection with Christ”. And Jesus isn’t his only connection: he would also invite Shakira as a tribute to Borcea’s trademark belly dancing goal celebration.
He added: “With Gigi there, what a fairytale this will be.”
Oh yes, he also loves to talk about himself in the third person.
