For The Love Of All That’s Holy, Stop Talking!

…because every time you open your mouth, you’re embarrassing yourself. Barca’s newly appointed sporting director Carles Rexach (he’s also a former Barca player & coach) is just blabbing all over the place.

His theory on why we sold Angel Di Maria to Manchester United? He was “too ugly” for our global brand. Um, he played for us for 4 frigging seasons, so please. (He also said Del Bosque was too ugly for RM). But it wasn’t just us. He had a go at Barca as well saying Messi ate too much pizza last season. That certainly doesn’t stop us. Los Blancos snarf pizza down on the regs and we won the Champions League! He also had a go at Luis Enrique & Johan Cruyff, revealed the cause of the Tito-Pep fall out, snarked about Victor Valdes’ exit and made some snide comments about the talents of Deulofeu, Sergi Roberto & Rakitic. Oof! As you can imagine, he’s now backpedaling like crazy. The remarks part of an interview with Catalan media outlet Regio7. Rexach told Marca that he has never done an interview with Regio7. However, he said that the remarks came from an ‘informal dinner’ last year with Barcelona fans. So, wait – he’s not denying he said this stuff? Um, okay. Regio7 said that he gave them the go ahead to publish the remarks in October. Sounds like grandpa got a bit tipsy at dinner and aired Barca’s dirty laundry to the wrong people.

Well, at least they all know what he thinks of them, right? If I were Rexach, I’d be sleeping with one eye open. Cruyff doesn’t forgive and he doesn’t forget.

    Wow….okay, what an ignorant fool.
    But ugh, this just hurt me to remember that Angel is struggling in England and not here being epic with us 😦

        Another grandpa (in the same mold as Sepp Blatter) with Foot in Mouth Disease.
