Federico Macheda gave an interview to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, during the interview he apparently branded team-mate Wayne Rooney as ‘working class and vulgar’.

Macheda is quoted as saying: “Rooney is a really great person, he always gives me advice, but he’s a bit working class and vulgar.”

It is very likely, in my opinion, that these quotes somewhere along the line have been mistranslated. Would he really say that about one of his team-mates, even if he does think it?

Players are often misquoted and it seems like this is another case of this happening.
