Run Fat Boy, Run!

Athletes, masters of their trade, and (for the most part) professional – that’s the perceptions we’re fed about the modern footballer. It’s “all about diet and preparation these days” the pundits keep telling us. Well, as always there are a few exceptions to the rule, and that exception goes by the name of Benni McCarthy.

The South Africa and West Ham forward was this week fined £80,000 (or two weeks wages) for not meeting the deadlines of his weight loss programme set by his club. For a man who trains every day, imagine the amount of cake you’d have to eat to keep up that kind of weight gain – well played Benni, well played son.
