Liverpool have been at the centre of a controversial situation this week after Bobby Duncan’s issues with the club became clear.
Duncan’s agent released a statement on his behalf, airing complaints about Michael Edwards and stating that the youngster’s mental health is being affected by the treatment.
Club legend Jamie Carragher quickly jumped to the defence of the Reds on Twitter, and what followed was a war of words between the Sky Sports pundit and the player’s representative.
These are certainly some strong accusations being thrown out by Saif Rubie. He calls Michael Edwards a glorified data analyst, and he states that when the truth comes out perceptions will change.
Unfortunately for Duncan, it’s hard to disagree with Carragher’s advice of leaving his agent. It’s really unprofessional behaviour to be spreading defamatory statements online and getting involved in a childish argument with a club legend.
Of course, the spitting incident was unacceptable, but how is it relevant to this situation? Emotions are running high, and Rubie isn’t conducting himself well at all here.
Carragher is spot on when he says that Rubie’s actions are only harming Duncan’s career. Yes, this type of public tirade may grant him his Anfield exit, but it’s tough to see any club wanting to deal with his agent after this debacle.
