Carlo Ancelotti uses lies to explain why Man Utd beat Chelsea
Prior to his side’s defeat against Man Utd that all but guaranteed Man U would be champions, Carlo Ancelotti, in an attempt to justify the defeat he seemed to know was coming, said this:
“Everyone goes for Messi but I would take Rooney. Messi is out of this world and maybe he is reaching the level of Maradona. Rooney, however, is closer to the reality of football. He puts his talent out to the rest of the team and this explains the difference between players and outstanding players.”
In fairness, he’s not saying Rooney is necessarily better than Messi, but still – haven’t you learnt anything from last season, Carlo?
