if i should be honest, i think this whole thing has been a misunderstanding. And zlatan has also gone out in the media and apoligized and said that is was just a joke between him and the journalist, but apparently he didnt understand that. BUT, i do not defend what zlatan said and i think it was a clumsy statement of the national team’s captain!
yeah that exactly what i mean. in no other sport they compares womens and mens perfomance. it is so stupid, get over it!!
but i have to disagree with you about zlatan being an arrogant ass. i mean he came from the slums and became one of the best in the world. he has worked his ass of to get where he is today, and there has not been as easy journey for him. What zlatan said stands for himself, and what his problem is that he does not think before he talks, he does not think about the consequences. I admire zlatan for what he does on the football field, but disagree with his statement :)
I personally think that what zlatan said was completely unnecessary. everything does not have to do with money. i mean last time the men’s team played a championship was like 2006(?) and went out like in eight finals, and last time the won anything was bronze in 1994. and then just look at the womens, they haven’t missed a single championship(i think). and if we just look at the 2000s, the girls have won two bronze and two silver medals, and they had sold out arenas on the home Euros this summer. I think the difference between men and womens football is that women dosent care about what the earn. They care about the sport that they love and most of all to win. Successes and medals is something people remember, few will remember who fancy cars the players had, or who paid whose travels.
seriously, i haven’t read everything but what i know it started on the swedish football gala when Andreas Svensson(plays in the swedish national team) got a car for most played games when Therese Sjögran who has like 40 caps more didnt get one. Most thought it was wrong and thought Sjögran should also get a car but didnt. And now have Zlatan gone out into the media and said alot of stuff about it. He says that the ladies have made it fantastic good, but you cant compare men’s and women’s football. Its like a bad joke that does not even go home in Rosengård(where he grew up). And they also say alot about that women’s football is a huge finanical loss and that it is the men’s football that brings in lot of money that makes women’s and youth national temas can go on their travels. what everyone reacted to i think was that Zlatan said that instead of getting a car Sjögran can get a bike with his autograph because it would be equal with money what the women’s team draws in. And caroline seger just answered…I think i got the most, but as i said I have not read so much about this, so there may be things I have misunderstood… (sorry if there are som grammatical errors, english is not my first language) :)
