There are some occasions when it’s not the match-winning goal, vital putt, or epic innings that make all the headlines, rather what is said after the event by those involved.
From Kevin Keegan’s “I’D LOVE IT!” rant to Alan Hansen’s wildly incorrect prediction that Manchester United’s “Class of ’92” would win nothing, some sporting quotes have gone down in folklore and are often more memorable than what has gone before.
While sport can provide us with the most remarkable athletes, colorful characters, influential leaders and memorable heroes; there have been a number of individuals who have left as significant a legacy with their words as they have with their ability.
From legends of the court, pitch course, dugout our racetrack; these individuals have never seemed to hesitate when speaking their minds, even at the expense of grammatical respect and without, it seems, any consideration for what their words might mean.
So here’s your chance to put your knowledge of these particularly profound pronouncements to the test.
