One of my favourite players of the squad. Tidy, smart, great pass on him. Also love that he doesn’t give a toss about the sport outside of it as a work, I find that endearing. Just like Olof Mellberg (first player to score on emirates una)
I’ve worked with Olof as manager. He is crazy about football.

There are loads of footballers who aren't massively keen on football. I think with a few exceptions most of them enjoy playing the game, they're just not great fans of watching it.

Tevez was a great pro. He's said more than once he's not interested in watching it on TV. He'd rather watch golf.

David Batty treated football like a clock in / out job.

Ter-Stegen has said his normal mates know more about football and footballers than him. He's just not interested.

Assou-Ekotto actively disliked football. He just happened to have a talent for it.

Christian Vieri said he'd quit football tomorrow if he could be a pro cricketer.

Even Ronaldinho said he'd watch the highlights of matches but wasn't bothered about watching full games.

He does rewatch his own performances though (for the purpose of learning from his mistakes), we saw it in the amazon documentary which highlighted the mistakes he made against Liverpool last season.

I think it must be quite normal to be honest.
You spend your whole life dedicated to playing the game, every day in training, eating the correct food, constant discussions about tactics, etc.
Can imagine when a player gets home they just want to switch off, enjoy other hobbies or just chill and play PS5, XBOX, etc. Like I can't imagine many joiners going home and watching countless hours of youtube videos of guys fitting doors, or building up kitchens.

Wait Vieri knew what cricket was!? That’s mad.

No news on this yet? Surprised they’ve managed to keep a lid on it for this long, not often you see that in this day and age…

If it’s connected to his family life then we might never hear anything.

We shouldn’t expect to hear something, let him have his space and hope for the best for the guy - football really is a second thought atm.

You all are being too pessimistic
Maybe he just shagged somebody's wife
Wish people stop treating their bodies and others as a plaster for their hearts and go with their hearts in their first place, clear and sound. I really like him, he seems intelligent and real but you can never be sure in this world. I hope he gets some good news soon and that we are back on business. he is been brilliant so far.
