As is usually the case in football there is always some over paid, over rated, spoilt brat waiting to stick the knife in and give us his bleeding heart story. In the case of Mark Hughes’ sacking we didn’t have to wait long for Martin Petrov to give us an insight into how difficult his life had become – while earning a large weekly five figure sum – under Hughes at Manchester City.
A man who consistently goes missing during games, who dosen’t do enough when given his chance, moaning about not getting a game every week is just the kind of attitude that has just got Mark Hughes the sack.
The fact is that football is now a squad game where everyone has to play their part and not everyone can always be kept happy.
As usual some egotistic selfish arrogant footballer crawls out from under his stone with the view that he is more important than the good of the team and club.
Did the hard working Petrov expect Mark Hughes to drop Craig Bellamy to put him in the side?
He may have a point with Robinho – who is another lazy git with a bad attitude – getting picked ahead of him, but Robinho is far more talented and has in fairness won games in the past for City, well at Eastlands, anyway.
A couple of quotes from Petrov’s defence of himself in how bad he has been treated are quite telling for me.
He say’s “I have been away from Bulgaria for 10 years now and sometimes I have had problems like this with other managers.”
‘I have had problems like this with other managers,’ you don’t say Martin. Why don’t we find that too hard to believe.
In defending yourself with remarks like this you are contradicting your own defence, is he really that thick or is he just, as I suspect, out of touch with reality.
Living in his own little bubble, like so many others, such as the likes of Pascal Chimbonda, Laurent Robert etc, the sort of people that get the decent pro footballers tarred with the same brush with their selfish, childish antics.
He also said “I am grateful to my family and friends because it is only through them that I managed to get through it.”
Oh, sorry Martin. If I had realised you had just got over a live threatening illness I wouldn’t have criticized you. You should have said earlier!
Unbelievable, what planet is this man living on. He is an embarrassment.
I think from the pathetic nature of these remarks we can all draw our own conclusions that Petrov is just another one of these selfish petulant idiots that believes in his own hype, and thinks he is a lot better and lot more important than he really is.
