So Do You Only Think About Money Gael?

So Do You Only Think About Money Gael?

If ever there was proof that footballers need to shut the f*** up and concentrate on football, it was given to us yesterday when Gael Clichy signed for Manchester City.

Players have the tools to talk to the media and fans 24/7 these days, and man do they use it, sometimes to good effect, but most of the time it`s mindless babble, that often comes back to bite them in the arse.

In 2009 Gael Clichy said this about Man City`s spending spree and what he thought about those who signed for them.

'I really believe if you are a player who thinks only about money then you could end up at Manchester City.'

'You have to think if you want to play for a big club and have your image or if you want to play for a good club and earn big money.'

'When you ask someone to move for something like £300,000 a week it is just crazy.'


I take it you changed your mind then Gael :)

Things change. People change. Clubs change. Its more likely he's moving now because he wants to win trophies.

People change - You're right, Gael went from caring about football to caring about money. According to his own words at least :)

Maybe he just wanted to be at a club with a chance of challenging for the title?

Only thing is Rocky he's not earning anywhere near the type of ridiculous money he's talking about above, according to the most sensationalist of sensationalists the S*n he signed a contract worth £65,000 a week, still high but comparably very low. If true it kind of makes your argument fall flat on it's face.

There's no way anyone can know how much he's on! Anyway, I'm just poking a little fun .... and pointing out that it does well for footballers to shut up and not comment on other teams.

"that it does well for footballers to shut up and not comment on other teams" Can't argue with that.

In honesty I'd say Gael didn't really move for the money, he's a player I always liked, seems like a really nice guy, I can't wish him well because he plays for City, but I wish him good health and happiness when he leaves you. lol

I wonder if Bluedub and SBSS can tell why Mancini and all the Citeh resources can't seem to be able to hold down Tevez. The man is angling for a move; again.

He never stopped angling for a move Naja. Your guess is as good as mine, he's either being genuine and it's about doing what's best for his family, or which I suspect, himself and his agent are trying to get one last massive pay day from another European club before he *****s off back to Argentina.
