PFA on completely different planet

October 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The PFA’s protection of Carlos Tevez has been met with irritation by Manchester City, and bafflement by everyone else.

City have been forced to halve the fine that they gave Tevez following their inquiry into his behaviour against Bayern Munich, and have been warned that manager Roberto Mancini could be sued for publicly admitting at least one of his players doesn’t want to do what he’s paid £250K per week to do.

“Four weeks’ wages is too much to fine poor Carlos,” chided PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor.

“We found no evidence that he actually refused to play and therefore the club cannot fine him more than two weeks’ worth. Besides, how do they expect him to pay the bills?

“We might also support any legal action Carlos decides to take because, as it is our duty to represent players, we have to argue their cases, no matter how deluded and ludicrous they might be.

“We’re not going to allow any proper punishment against our lads unless we see clear evidence that they’ve kicked their manager in the nether-regions, or something similar.”

    Gordon Taylor is like Bob Crowe but without the looks and charm.
