Russia—The Brazil legend had helped his team Anzhi Makhachkala build a 3-0 lead over Krylya Sovetov in midweek when a banana was thrown at him from the stands. An emotional Carlos stopped playing and tossed the banana to the side of the pitch before heading for the touchline.Fighting tears and an appeal from the referee, he refused to continue playing and sat on the bench with his team-mates. Speaking after the game, he said: “I’m outraged by the sickening behavior of this fan, who, in fact, insulted not only me but all the players.”I hope the Russian federation, UEFA and FIFA will give an adequate evaluation to this disgusting incident.”
This is exactly why nobody respects soccer players. Some drunk fan says something mean and throws a banana at you and quit and cry? What a joke. Hey Roberto, its called home field advantage you pussy, ever heard of it? Kind of comes with the territory. That guy nailed you, he nailed you right in your mind. The Russian Federation will give this an adequate evaluation alright. Putin is going to give that guy a medal and send him on vacation to the Hot Girl Army camp as a big thank you. Soccer players have to be the biggest pussies in sports. Diving, crying, quitting, just totally pathetic.
Here is how Roberto Carlos should handle that situation.
