Edgar Davids Thinks He’s Alexander Haig
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Edgar Davids is in control here. Life in the Championship doesn’t seem to suit him too well. He signed with Crystal Palace this season after leaving Ajax and hasn’t been able to find the form which made him a star at Juventus and Barcelona. His struggles have lead to frustration which blew over in training after a fellow Palace player yelled at him for giving up the ball.
Tempers boiled over when Bennett, on loan from Nottingham Forest, blasted the veteran for giving the ball away in a practice session.
Davids, who joined the Eagles in August, took exception to the criticism and squared up to the defender.
“He went over to Bennett, grabbed him and started screaming ‘I’m the boss around here’.
“Everybody was stunned and nobody quite knew how to react – before a few of the other lads then jumped in and pulled them apart.
Davids doesn’t have time to Tony Danza with Bennett. There’s no question about who’s the boss. It’s the guy with the Rec-Specs. Just ask Kurt Rambis. MC Dr. Geek will second him on that.
The former Dutch international tested positive for steroids back in 2001 while with Juventus. Maybe he’s got some leftover roid rage. Perhaps he’s dipping in them again in a desperate effort to get his juju back. It’s likely that he’s just crazy. Louis van Gaal didn’t call him The Pitbull for nothing. Regardless Bennett should have manned up and dropped him Jhoon Rhee style.
Nobody bothers me either!
