Allegri: "I see too many football philosophers. I'll come back next year." (Full interview translated)

its bizarre to me that there is so much downvoting happening to the comments pointing this out. someone's analysis can be interesting, insightful, and still antiblack. there was no reason he had to position african players twice as the counterexample to intelligent footballers. and it's simply not true that koulibaly, for example, is unintelligent, nor is it true that african players are strictly physically gifted. if i had to list the top most intelligent players in the game right now, most of them would be african. imagine mane is doing what he's doing right now and someone says african players are more physically gifted than intellectually.

ps key and peele have a whole skit about exactly this mentality perpetrated by white sportspeople lol
