Carlos Queiroz Wants To Start A War
One would think the pressure would be off Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz after completing the double this season. In the words of an American resident idiot (the sign), “not so fast, my friends”.
Queiroz is losing his mind over the protracted battle with Real Madrid over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Cristiano Ronaldo will never be Spanish! As they will never take Olivenca again,” he told the Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Noticias, referring to the small town on the disputed border between the two countries. He also delved further into the historic rivalry, alluding to explorer Christopher Columbus – who both countries claim as their own – and the Spanish Philippine Dynasty, which ruled Portugal from 1580 until the bloodless revolution of 1640.
“They already did the same with Christopher Columbus, and it now seems they want to naturalise Cristiano Ronaldo,” the United No 2 added. “Have they already forgotten what we did to them in the past? We will never lose our patience.”
With Portugal preparing for Euro 2008, Queiroz knows the furore could not have come at a worse time. “It’s being done in a manner to distract the Portugal team, at the height of their preparations for the European Championships,” he said. “But I am convinced that despite pressure from the Spanish press he will not change his nationality.”
Sounds like someone could use a horse tranquilizer or a roofie-filled burger. Hopefully Queiroz’s words will start an Iberian conflict that will work as a cover so Portugal and Spain can annex Andorra like the Sudetenland. Mwhahaha! I love it when a plan comes together.
