Somebody should put a lid on this Carles Rextach mouth
War of words between Barcelona and Real Madrid are not a rare event. however Barcelona assistant director has just taken it to a whole new level with a startling claim that the Argentine and Manchester United playmaker Angel Di Maria was let go of Real Madrid because he was too ugly for the Galacticos.
Carles Rexach is quoted as saying,
“Florentino Perez looks at the world market and wants a team of Galacticos for everyone to admire. Do you understand what I mean?”
“Ronaldo is the flagship of the club. Perez is selling an international brand. Vicente Del Bosque and Di Maria are too ugly for Real Madrid. They are different from Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez”
Everyone loves a good banter now and then but this is just stooping low to a whole other level. The Argentine playmaker made the switch to Manchester United from Real Madrid this season for a new English club record fee 59.7£ million.
Carles Rexach was a player at Barcelona for 22 years after which he joined the club as a coach. Rexach was always someone that wasn’t shy at making controversial statements. Last year he was quoted as saying Lionel Messi “ate more pizzas than he should have done”.
What’s wrong with the Mirror?
This piece of news has managed to grab attention of all major news outlets out their but the way some of these so called newspapers have reported this is just “ugly”.
Take the Mirror for example they are actually making fun of Di Maria. Who cares if he doesn’t look like a Cristiano Ronaldo all people care about is how he plays.
This is the kind of reporting that gives Journalism a bad name. Did the guy that wrote actually think it would be funny? The Mirror has even included a poll question asking the readers if Di Maria is ugly.ugly. Geezz.. how low will they stoop to?
Football is not a beauty pageant
Despite not being in the best of form Di Maria is still considered as one of the best players out there.
He was a crucial part of Real Madrid when he was there from 2010 to 2014 making 191 appearances and scoring 36 goals.
