midfield Posted May 13, 2009 Report Share Posted May 13, 2009 I took this as a quote from Harry Redknapp. I must say I agree with everything he says. I could be wrong but this doesn't seem to happen in Italy or Spain where there is a different attitude towards alcohol and sport. What do other people think? "People make mistakes. It's not right, though, and it can't happen. I don't think there is any place for drinking in football. "The rewards are so fantastic now. Modern day footballers are top-class athletes and they should look after themselves." Redknapp believes too many players are not aware of their social responsibly to set a good example to others. He also feels that modern-day football has a drinking culture similar to that which existed during his playing days in the 1970s. "Yes I do, too much goes on still," he said. "It's every football club. Not as much as it used to years ago, sure, but it still goes on." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
