Top 8 controversial T-Shirt Messages in Football
- A few weeks before Robin van Persie's "RIP Tchuna" message went viral on the Internet. So, with that in mind, here is a list of 7 controversial T-shirt messages that were revealed by Football stars. There are touching messages like the ones that were revealed in support of Fabrice Muamba and there are ones that are quite emotional like Billy Sharp's 'Thats for you Son' message three days after
# 6 – Dimitar Berbatov – Keep calm and pass me the ball
This one is fairly recent. On December 26, 2012, Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov opened the scoring for his team against Southampton and as soon as he did, he displayed the famed message – “Keep calm and pass me the ball”.
The match ended 1 – 1 and Berbatov couldn’t score again despite his teammates passing him the ball.
# 5 – James Beattie – Obvious!
In 2003, James Beattie was playing for Southampton and he was one of their leading players. Beattie wanted an England call up and the Three Lions were having problems in their attacking department.
So, Beattie thought that he was the obvious choice and went on to display the message “Obvious” after scoring a goal against Middlesbrough. The then England Manager Sven Goran Eriksson called up Beattie but he didn’t deliver on what he promised. Beattie till date has 5 England appearances and no goals to his name.Published 14 Jan 2013, 19:22 IST
