The Joy Of Text

‘YOU have to be careful with mobile phones, as Romania’s top footballer Marian Aliuta found out when he mistakenly sent a text message criticising his club coach to the club’s owner.

Aliuta intended to send the text criticising new Steaua Bucharest coach Walter Zenga to his old coach and friend Victor Piturca.

Instead, he sent it to Steua owner Victor Becali.

The message read: ‘It was much better when you were here. Zenga isn’t worth anything.’

A few days later, Aliuta bought himself out of his contract and joined rivals Rapid Bucharest.

‘The story is true,” admitted Aliuta, “I did send the SMS to my boss and that only made my situation at the club worse.”
