Liverpool Balls: Raheem Sterling Has Only 18 Hours Off A Week To Sleep, Eat And Call His Agent
IAN Wright adds his view to the Raheem Sterling story – the one about his being too ‘tired’ to start for England in Estonia.
IMAGINE walking into work one Monday morning ready for a 40 or 50-hour week.
Yeah, imagine how good that would be to no longer be on a zero hours contract. But Wright is not talking of living the dream. He talking of the nightmare:
Then think how you would feel if the boss suddenly decided that from now on he expected you to spend treble that time in the office.
A 150 hours week.
That leaves 18 unpaid hours for all the little things in life, like eating , sleeping and dashing out a column in the Sun.
I’ve a strong suspicion that by the weekend you would be telling anyone who would listen how shattered you were.
Weekend? What weekend, Ian?
There wouldn’t be too many who had anything but sympathy for you either — and rightly so. That would apply to any walk of life, be it an office, a building site, a production line, wherever. Anywhere you could name, in fact, apart from football.
Footballers are working 150 hour weeks? What as..?
