This is a quote from his latest press conference, not just to do with him either i think he makes a great point about all the players who have been in this situation:
”It’s a bit disappointing when board members who don’t know a thing about football make decisions on your career,” Mason said. ”You know, when you have a look at it, you’ve got a coach and most senior players all coming out saying, ‘Yeah, we want him at our club’, CEOs do, but then it gets to a board meeting and, you know, you’ve just got fat businessmen all making a decision on your career. You’ve got ex-footballers that might say ‘yes’ and these other dudes who know nothing about football trying to make a decision on your career. It’s frustrating, in the end. It wasn’t taking anything away from my pride, it was just starting to make me angry a little bit.”
I know it wasnt the best way to say it but it really is true, it has happened a fair bit where the players/coaches/training staff/CEO’s everyone wants a player, then the board says NO, dont you reckon its wrong how the chairman have the final say when most of them know nothing
Mate, Mason is the best. Everyone doesn’t like him, but nobody gives a good reason why.
I like him so much I have a big poster of him above my bed so I can get sweet dreams of him.
