Pele And Robinho In New Bust-Up
(EDITED TO AVOID CONFUSION – This is part of a series of articles taking the mickey out of press coverage of Manchester City. It is not intended to be believed).
Legendary senile Brazilian footballer Pele, 97, today apologised and claimed that he was misquoted again after Manchester City failure Robinho threatened to sue him for the second time in a week. “Maybe there’s been a misunderstanding because I didn’t say he enjoyed clubbing seals to death at all, maybe they took him the wrong information,” Pele said in comments broadcast on Brazilian television. “I was merely comparing the stigma of being accused of clubbing seals to death with the stigma of being accused of leaving a training camp without permission. Although I didn’t mention the second bit.”
Robinho is disgracefully no better than fourth leading scorer in the Premiership at the time of writing despite the obscene amount of money paid for him in a secret deal. It is known that City manager Mark Hughes only found out about the signing when Robinho walked into a press conference and handed Hughes a Kaka shirt as a getting to know you present.
