Respect to Baotelli

He is in a press conference and when a Sun reporter tries to ask him a question he refuses because they wrote bad stuff about him.

He looks genuinely hurt by what the newspapers wrote about him.

I felt sorry for him, he has basically been hounded out of the country. Yeah he did aloooot of stupid stuff but looking back the media did exaggerate it a lot.

He was one of the reasons the League was exciting. The kind of player with a character and not robots who just say the same things over and over. He was Blockbuster.

You don't have to agree with me, everyone has their own opinions him but I just wanted to share this BOSS moment.

Here's the Video: http://youtu.be/Iogb32FPl70?t=38m38s

Its at around the 38:38 min mark. It is English aswell

Great post! Watching the link now and I'm glad to see him stick up for himself. The media loved crucifying him non-stop, the EPL will miss him and I hope nothing but success for him in Milan!

As a none Citeh fan, I found him thoroughly entertaining. Obviously if I was a Citeh fan, I'd find him ridiculously frustrating. Sad to see him go.

Watched it live on YouTube. The media always finds a story and turns into ten times than what it really is. He was actually surprised by the responses he has gotten since he arrived which was shocking to hear. The Milan fans love him and have wanted him for a while. Not sure why he would think there would be some negativity. He's already been told he'll play tomorrow so we'll see how this all works out

I don't feel sorry for him in the least. He had a legitimate shot at shining.

Why? Because people hold the English Premier League as one of the best in the world. It's had it's fair share of amazing players come in from other leagues that were little more then just names and they turned into some of the biggest stars in world football.

If Balo had chilled out on the antics and concentrated on his game, I'd have respect for him. He's a year older than myself and has the world at his fingertips. He's gotten to play with some of the best teams, has gotten paid great amounts of money to do it. He's probably earned in a month what I'll make in two years.

I don't think people would have the same respect for Henry if he'd come over from Juve, made headlines for the wrong reason's and then piddled off back to Italy . A lot of people, including myself, think he has the skill to make it happen. He could be an amazing star that people will actually take seriously if he takes his game, his life, his job seriously.

Sadly he doesn't. I'm not saying players shouldn't have fun because the media is swarming all over them, but damn.. I'm pretty sure Messi has great fun without the media tearing him a new one.

i dont feel the least bit sorry for him either

the amount of money the man made plus the way he acted when he wasnt picked or was subbed it just wrong and poor sportsmanship
