Liverpool Balls: Hugs, Kisses And Graeme Souness

by | 21st, August 2014

LIVERPOOL Balls: In the Daily Mail, Graeme Souness features beneath the headline:

The thing I miss about being a player is the competition, standing in the tunnel eyeing each other up and down

Says Souness:

“I can see where I went wrong. I was too hard on people. ‘‘Man-up and deal with it, look in the mirror’’ — that was the way I’d been brought up. At Liverpool, we were treated like men and expected to act like men. There was no mollycoddling.”

Steady, Graeme, “man-up” is now a banned phrase at Liverpool.

“I took that into management and the world changed, not just football, the world changed. Players today expect an arm around the shoulder and a sympathy vote. There’s a lot more hugging goes on today. I can’t remember any hugging going on when I played. Man-hugs are commonplace today…”
