Why footballers shouldn’t be allowed to speak
What, really, is the point of the post-match interview, eh? Has anyone ever said anything enlightening? Surprising, even?
Take Frank Lampard, for instance. Now, he’s as gifted a public speaker as his cousin, Jamie “Frank’s a top, top player” Redknapp. It’s not entirely fair to mock either of them for that. But here’s honest Frank’s assessment of last night’s European Cup semi-final first leg at Anfield that finished 1-1.
I think we deserved definitely to get the draw at the end. They had chances and we had chances. It was a battle and we carried on to the end. This is not an easy place to come and we kept at it. We kept going, we created chances and we were persistent. There were times when they were on top and there were times when we were on top.
