What He Said: Big Phil SpecialBy: Rob | June 12th, 2008
Every now and then, I do a collection of the best quotes of the round, of the week. Today, its dedicated entirely to new Chelsea manager Big Phil. Mainly because he is quite crazy. Get an insight into his head with the strangest, most bizzare, and funniest things he has ever said right here, on the Champions League Offside:
“If someone talks about my private life, for example, I’ll give them a
good punching. I’m not interested in suing. I like to sort things out
my way” – I wouldn’t want to be a British Newspaper reporter now.
“Jesus said we should turn the other cheek. Unfortunately, Figo is not
Jesus Christ” – This came after Luis Figo headbutted Mark van Bommell
“I believe firmly in astrology. Since I was a kid, the stars told me I
was a winner” – He’s the same star-sign as Red Roman readers.
“When the ball goes to his feet it doesn’t cry. When it goes to my
feet it cries” – on Zizou
“I don’t want this situation involving England because in two days
during which I was not coach, I never agreed to anything, my life was
invaded. My privacy was totally under siege” – or, Good Luck Fabio.
“I think Pele knows nothing about soccer. He’s done nothing as a coach
and his analysis turns out to be always wrong” – after Pele had said he couldn’t win a World Cup with Brazil.
“Pinochet tortured a lot but there is no illiteracy in Chile” – A mildly Right Wing take on things.
