Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has ridiculously claimed that Birmingham City striker Che Adams is ‘miles better’ than Rangers star and Colombia international Alfredo Morelos.
MacAnthony was responding to a fan who had claimed Morelos was ‘twice the player’ of Adams – who the Posh chief valued at £15-£20million.
“Score goals in champ possibly but not sure in Prem. Could be wrong. Just my opinion. Adams miles better imo.”
Morelos hit the net 30 times and added 11 assists in 48 games for Rangers while Adams scored 22 times and contibuted five assists in the same number of game for City.
Both players are in demand this summer but the suggestions that Adams is “miles better” is utterly laughable.
MacAnthony’s comments about how he only scored goals in Scotland is typical of the arrogance of insignificant English clubs.
Given the chance, you can be sure MacAnthony would jump at the chance to take Morelos to Peterborough although it seems unlikely that Morelos would ever have any interest in playing mid-table football in England’s third tier.
