I’m a sucker for great idiotic quotes. So in honor of soccer players and their infinite complete lack of wisdom, here is a collection of my favorite quotables:

“We lost because we didn’t win.” (Ronaldo)

“We must have had 99 percent of the game. It was the other three percent that cost us the match.” (Ruud Gullit)

“I couldn’t settle in Italy – it was like living in a foreign country.” (Ian Rush)

“Germany are a very difficult team to play…they had 11 internationals out there today.” (Steve Lomas)

“Sometimes in football you have to score goals.” – Thierry Henry

“There’s no in-between – you’re either good or bad. We were in-between.” (Gary Lineker)

“I took a whack on my left ankle, but something told me it was my right.” (Lee Hendrie)

“Winning doesn’t really matter as long as you win.” (Vinnie Jones)

“I’d like to play for an Italian club like Barcelona.” – Mark Draper

“The beauty of Cup football is that Jack always has a chance of beating Goliath.” (Terry Butcher)

“I spent 90 percent of my money on women and drink. The rest I wasted!” (George Best)

“I always used to put my right boot on first, and then obviously my right sock.” (Barry Venison)

“I’m as happy as I can be – but I have been happier.” (Ugo Ehiogu)

“I was surprised but I always say nothing surprises me in football.” (Les Ferdinand)


Same here, Les, same here.

Well, that’s the list. Did I miss any? Comment below.
