Marcos Angeleri-gate - reaction

Marcos Angeleri-gate - reaction

Courtesty of ESPN Radio, 'The boss doesn't talk to me, he doesn't even say hello to me when he sees me, I think he doesn't like me because I'm not English.

'Steve Bruce is not a nice person at all. He is a little unpleasant. I have played just a few minutes in Sunderland since my arrival.

'I want to play, that's my job. That's why I'm not happy here in Sunderland. I don't understand why I'm not playing. The boss is too defensive.'

Marcos Angerleri`s attack has come to no surprise, but not for the racial reasons that have been blown across the media…

No, fans know that manager Steve Bruce can get angry with his players at times but to stop speaking to them because their English is the one of the stupidest quotes and reasons I have ever read.

The last thing Bruce wants to do is cause a mass exodus and unrest amongst his players and he does whatever he can to keep them happy.

You look at the crop of foreign talent we have at the club, African, Belgian, Dutch and now Sudanese, does Marcos really think playing the racism card would work? Doesn`t he realise that the club have players from the different countries and continents? Doesn`t make sense somehow but all this talk and attacking could mean something.

The way Angeleri has come out and attacked his boss is unforgivable and from a fans point of view it looks like he`s doing everything he can to establish a move away to Argentina.

That`s fine he can go, Bruce has even said he has no future here at Sunderland AFC, it`s a shame though because he was thought to be a great signing, but three appearances hasn`t exactly done enough to show he`s worth the £2million we`d paid for him, has it?

What to you think?
