Recently, Robin van Persie‘s “RIP Tchuna” message went viral on the Internet. So, with that in mind, here is a list of 8 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 ‘That’s for you Son’ message three days after the death of his son. But the ones below are either crazy, unnecessary, arrogant or just unexplainable!
# 8 – Ian Wright – 179 Just done it
Arsenal‘s Ian Wright was at 177 goals. Just one less than Cliff Bastin’s club record. He wanted to break the record as soon as possible.
And so, when he scored the goal against Bolton in 1997, he revealed a T-shirt which read “179 Just Done it” but in fact, it was only his 178th goal. But before the news could create any controversy, he scored two more goals to claim a hat-trick.
His record, however, was broken in less than 8 years by Thierry Henry.
# 7 – Thierry Henry – Bang goes the 0 – 0 draw!
No Arsenal player had scored against Liverpool for almost 3 years! Ian Wright was the last man to do it.
It was a nasty affair when Arsenal took on Liverpool in 2000, as three players – two from Liverpool and one from Arsenal – were sent off. But, right at the death, Henry made sure of the victory by scoring and went on to reveal the message “Bang goes the 0-0 draw”, pointing out the fact they had finally scored against Liverpool.
