Former Liverpool youth striker Marvin Pourie, who left the Merseyside club in 2009 after failing to push on and make the first-team, went on a nuclear rant on Danish television yesterday after his side, Randers FC, let a first-half lead slip at home to mid-table outfit Silkeborg.
Pourie provided the assist for Marcus Moldvadgaard to score Randers’ first-half goal, but a penalty from Robert Skov on 65 minutes made it 1-1. And that’s how the game finished.
Asked in a post-match interview what he was feeling immediately following the final whistle, Pourie really let loose, refusing to hold back the expletives.
“That’s a great question,” he began. “Was I really frustrated? No. Absolutely pissed off! Because what we showed in the second half is the most stupidest thing I’ve ever seen in my whole fucking career. We were leading 1-0. I’m talking about the one goal is not enough, yeah? And we keep on doing the same things over and over again.
“Not pushing up, not being aggressive – as we had been in the first-half. We played an excellent game in the first half, we created chances, we made the runs. Then, all of a sudden [in the second half], guys were losing their minds in the break.
“We all have the confidence, we still have the potential, we have the quality. I still believe in my teammates. But the point is we’re doing this shit all over again in the second-half.

It’s easy to understand Pourie’s anger, as his side currently at the foot of the Superliga table with just 3 points to show from six outings. It’s still very early on in the season but things are looking bleak for Randers.
