~~ This is just flat out amazing…… It all started with Ol’ Arry dropping some ‘fat jibes’ at Adel Taarabt….
“He’s not injured,” Redknapp said. “He’s not fit. He’s not fit to play football, unfortunately. He played in a reserve game the other day and I could have run about more than he did. I can’t pick him. I pick people who want to try, who deserve to be at a good football club like QPR, who come in every day and want to work, train and show a good attitude. When he starts doing that, if he ever can do it, maybe he’ll get a game. “I can’t keep protecting people who don’t want to run about and train, and are about three stone overweight. What am I supposed to keep saying? Keep getting your 60, 70 grand a week and don’t train? What’s the game coming to?”
Then Taarabt sat down with the Daily Mail, lifted up his shirt and drop his own quote sheet. The kid’s got a right to respond to something like that right?!?!
And O’l Arry’s response definitely got a few laughs :: “The only reason he has lost weight is because he has had tonsillitis. That’s the only way we could get any weight off of him. “He is not fit to play a game, that’s the truth. He is the worst professional I have ever come across and I have been his only ally at QPR for the past three years.”
~~ At the day, this has that feeling of a coach that’s finally fed up with protecting one of the most talented players in England… ESPECIALLY after dude comes back from AC Milan, playing alongside Balotelli, Kaka, Robinho & Co and from the quote sheet, seems to just be mailing it in. At least we know this war of words isn’t over.
Even the owner is throwing his two cents around on twitter and retweeting ::
