Drivetime’s day was made on Monday as a Manchester City fan launched into a passionate rant in reaction to the Blues’ FA Cup exit at the hands of Chelsea.
Joining Adrian Durham and Darren Gough, Pete from Middlesbrough raged at City flops Aleksandar Kolarov – “He’s not worth two bob, mate!” – and Fernando – “He’s got a touch like a baby elephant!” – as well as criticism over Manuel Pellegrini’s team selection for Sunday’s cup clash.
Pellegrini fielded a young team, handing five teenagers their first-team debuts as he rested his top stars ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Dynamo Kiev.
But the call backfired as the inexperienced side were thumped 5-1 at Stamford Bridge.
Former City defender Danny Mills slammed the boss’ decision, but Pete disagrees and insists the Pellegrini – “the guy is an absolute gentleman” – did City a favour.
Listen to the brilliant rant in full above! And Pete? Have a lie down, mate!
