Qui è riportata solo la Top 5, per venire incontro alla vostra pazienza nello scorrere il post.
A highly subjective list of some of the witty, cutting or downright weird things that sportsmen have said. Some hit the spot, while others backfired.
5 "Hands up if you think we're boring."
Not a great quote but this headline from the Sydney Daily Telegraph, above a picture of the England rugby team saluting their fans after beating France in the 2003 World Cup final, gets a high place in the list simply because of the result in the next match. Hands up who cares if we were boring?
4 "So how are your wife and my kids?" "The wife's fine, the kids are retarded."
An exchange between Rod Marsh, the Australia wicketkeeper, and Ian Botham, the England all-rounder
3 "You were a crap player, you are a crap manager. The only reason I have any dealings with you is that somehow you are manager of my country and you're not even Irish, you English ****. You can stick it up your bollocks."
What Roy Keane allegedly said to Mick McCarthy, the Ireland manager, that got him sent home from the 2002 World Cup. Keane is now a responsible Premier League manager.
2 "Why are you so fat?" "Because every time I f*** your wife she gives me a biscuit."
Exchange between Glenn McGrath, the Australia bowler, and Eddo Brandes, the large Zimbabwean cricketer.
1 Whatever Marco Materazzi said about Zinedine Zidane’s sister
Or his mother or terrorism. No one is quite sure what the Italy defender actually said during the 2006 World Cup final, but Materazzi's insult rile Zidane so much that he headbutted him in the chest and was sent off.
