Dimitar Berbatov has blasted David James!
Today saw the final round of games in the Indian Super League. That in itself would rarely be wholly significant to sports fans in Ireland. However, a certain Robbie Keane marked his managerial debut by starting himself and scoring the winner forAtletico de Kolkata.
That’s not the only interesting piece of news coming from the league today. The Kerala Blasters played the final game of their campaign, going down to Bengaluru FC. The Blasters, managed by former England goalkeeper David James, missed out on the playoffs, and this caused one of the club’s more high profile stars to vent his frustrations on social media.
Former Tottenham and Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov was less than impressed with James’ managerial contributions, and declared his relief that the season is over. The Bulgarian declared James to be “the worst wannabe coach ever”, said he gives “the worst tactical advice”, and was left bewildered by instructions to “chip the ball to striker’s chest and we take it from there”.
It would appear that the Blasters changing room, where Wes Brown also features, isn’t the happiest of venues right now as they break for their off-season.
