Demba Ba Admits His Biggest Vice
With all the modern day excesses of some of the biggest household names, what is Demba’s biggest failing?
Wait for it…Demba Ba has admitted he likes to stay up late when he is on holiday!
At an Adidas boot launch, Demba was asked a number of questions put forward by fans and one of them was ‘Do you have any restrictions as a professional footballer’?
“I go to bed late when I’m on holiday but because of football I usually go to bed early”.
I know we can’t expect players to be saints and that Demba Ba comes from a totally different culture compared to most homegrown players, especially with regard to his religion.
However, I’ve always thought that the huge amounts of money players get in the modern game should equate to an absolute minimum of behaviour and they should make sacrifices accordingly whilst they are a ‘professional footballer’.
I’m no massive fan of the national team but when the revelations came out after the last world cup regarding Rooney’s behaviour, and others, in the build-up to those finals – you have to say it’s a disgrace.
For me, particularly the images of Rooney, Crouch and others smoking is just at total no no, or maybe they’d like to be transported back to the 50s when players even smoked before matches, though that was due to a lack of awareness and modern day stars would not be too impressed with the pittance of pay back then.
Quite appropriate that we have Messrs Carroll and Nolan arriving in town this weekend, a meeting of two cultures…?
