Briatore Slams Man City

Briatore Slams Man City

Rangers co-owner Flavio Briatore has branded Manchester City's effort to get AC Milan superstar, Kaká as 'mad'.

Flavio Briatore has never been one to shy away from controversy and his latest outburst sees him take the supporters of football clubs into account in the wake of the since collapsed record breaking transfer saga.

Briatore said: 'If you'd put Schumacher in a Minardi it would have gone nowhere,

'If you put Kaka in this club it would go nowhere. It is completely mad.

'You look at Robinho. When he arrived he looked like he had solved the problem, but now the team looks like it is very close to going down.

'You have to have respect as well because there are people in the grandstands who only earn £14,000 a year.

'They see all this money going to one player, and for me there are no morals at all.'


Flavio helps comprise the second richest board in the world, behind Manchester City - and he believes it is time that clubs introduced a salary cap in order to give a bit of much needed clarity and perspective into the beautiful game.

Briatore believes that the example should be set from the top in order to bring the right ideals into the game.

He said: 'Without a salary cap we will go nowhere,

'When I arrive at my club parking lot it looks like the best car dealership in London because you see only Porsche, Audi and Ferrari.

'Yet there are people out there who have difficulties paying their mortgage.

'I feel the sport needs to set a good example to everybody because it's very challenging.

'I hope we arrive at a point where we impose a salary cap for the players. It's fundamental for the good of the sport.'

Seems like hes getting worried he might have to get he might have to write bigger cheques. His quote about pretending to care about the people that make 14k a year are rubbish. He himself said he did not care about people who pay £20 a week to the club so why the sudden change?

I think it gives us a tougher job in a fw years time certainly. It is nice to see that for once he acknowledges the fan's existence. We will see whether he will become the 'moral owner' in time. I agree though, I think it is poor timing, and what are Man City fans actually getting for this newly found wealth - they'll get a price hike no doubt.

Im not so sure they will have a price hike ... The owners always planned to throw their money around and expected returns in the form of championships not money,

But I'm saying if they're willing to throw the money about for their 'project' (Man City this is) why won't the fans see the benefit. The stadium is half empty - will they encourage fans in with incentives for younger generations? No - they'll let the price continue to rise, and force the corporates into the seats.

Nobody raised a hoot when real madrid bid £85m for ladyboy at the swamp last summer, so what was all the fuss about over this one. THe big four were rattled.
