Platini: I Like Barcelona's Style


Recommended Posts

:shoot:Platini Lauds Barcelona's Football Philosophy

In statements unlikely to go down well with Manchester United fans, the UEFA president has lavished praise upon the Blaugrana...

Michel Platini has sung the praises of Champions League finalists Barcelona ahead of the title decider in Rome on May 27.

Speaking to the newspaper El Mundo, Platini said, "Barcelona represents my philosophy, not just in their style of play, but how they form their footballers.

"I believe players should be protected until they are 18, more for moral reasons than economic ones."

The UEFA president then emphasised his love of Barca's footballing style, continuing, "They embody the ideals of Spanish football, which represents technique, an easy and open style of play.

"It seduces me."

Finally, Platini talked about some of Barca's star players: "Xavi is very good, the best player of EURO 2008, and so is Iniesta.

"Even players like Eto'o, Henry or Keita have all adapted brilliantly to their system."

i knew it..... <_<:rant:

How ridiculous is it that this man is allowed to make comments such as this? As the chairman of UEFA how can you be so biased towards one club competing in your competition. And people wonder where we get our conspiracy theories from. fact of the matter is, Mr Platini, that more then 3 quarters of the viewers that watch the champions league do so because of the English teams. You jealous French knob...

What the fuck? Who is the head of one of the biggest bodies of World football allowed to make comments like this? He might as well have been declaring Henning was on his payroll!

Edit, he was on his payroll :lol: But you get what i mean :P

Frankly I couldnt give a flying fuck what Platini has to say. What happened against Barca has been well publisised.

The best way to get right up his hole is to go out and win the CL next season. When we go passed him on the podium I'd love to see everyone of our players blank him. Its been clear for some time he has an agenda with the EPL.

In a way I want Manu to win and in another I dont. Hearing them harp on about "CHAMPIONS OF ENGLAND.....CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE shite does my tits in. I hate their fans more and more each season.

Can they both lose ? ^_^

I'd rather see Chelsea, or AIK Stockholm or Plymouth Argyle win the Champions League than Man United winning it, or Barcelona. I hate both teams for different reasons.

or how about a group of 11 referees make up a team and play Manchester United instead, because I bet that they would deserve a place, and Tom "bald cunt" Ovrebo would be their star player since it was him who thwarted our final dreams in the first place.
