Shit fools!

Who’d have thought Steve Staunton would find work long before the FAI got round to replacing him? Giovanni Trapattoni’s installation as the latest favourite for the vacant Ireland job gives us a quick opportunity to review his finest moment as coach of Red Bull Salzburg.

Clearly a man who doesn’t ‘do’ irony (the wife probably takes care of that sort of thing), the Italian dismisses suggestions that his players – owned lock, stock and barrel by an energy drinks firm – lack fitness in broken, yet blistering, German. A quick précis:

‘Our training is strong. Is modern. Training wins also. I have 21 trophies. There is blah, blah, blah from you. Fools write who know nothing. Blah, blah, blah, blah. I can understand people paying. No problema. Let whistle. Is right. Have lost. But run 90 minutes! I am a professional in psychology. We train, make fitness. You people always make qua, qua, qua. Shit fools!’

Have your say...
