If ever there was proof that footballers need to shut the f*** up and concentrate on football, it was given to us yesterday when Gael Clichy signed for Manchester City.

Players have the tools to talk to the media and fans 24/7 these days, and man do they use it, sometimes to good effect, but most of the time it`s mindless babble, that often comes back to bite them in the arse.

In 2009 Gael Clichy said this about Man City`s spending spree and what he thought about those who signed for them.

‘I really believe if you are a player who thinks only about money then you could end up at Manchester City.’

‘You have to think if you want to play for a big club and have your image or if you want to play for a good club and earn big money.’

‘When you ask someone to move for something like £300,000 a week it is just crazy.’

I take it you changed your mind then Gael 🙂
