PFA Chief, Gordon Taylor, has admitted to his disappointment at being left disappointed by a player so synonymous with disappointing those who have taken him on his word, that the name on the back of his shirt is stuck on with Velcro.
The player, Manchester City outcast Carlos Tevez, reportedly flew to Argentina without the express permission of club management, much to the embarrassment of a previously supportive Taylor.
He told reporters, 'It's difficult to determine who is the real villain of the piece in this shambolic story, myself, Manchester City, or Carlos himself.'
'Some might say it was crass foolishness on the PFA's part which led them to stand by a player who is as proficient in deserting his responsibilities as he is.'
'But then I wouldn't be in work if it weren't for mercenary types such as Carlos who seek to ratify their lack of loyalty to both their management and fans of their club by taking their case to the PFA, where they will be offered support.'
Man City fan, Mark Burke, felt it was strange that the PFA nailed its support to a mast that was liable to quickly disappear over the horizon at the drop of a hat.
'I don't know about you, but if I was to publicly declare my support for some one with a history of letting down those most close to him by taking to flight as soon as is feasibly possible, I would have been checking his future travel arrangements.'
