God softens football hardman

A Croatian football star says his team are losing matches because he can no longer commit fouls since finding God.

Hajduk Split defender Goran Granic has come in for a storm of criticism for abandoning his trademark hard tackles on opponents.

But Granic has now revealed his Catholicism is behind his softer style of play.

He told daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija: "I'm so devoted to God now that I have started to avoid committing fouls during matches.

"God has created football for fun and relaxation. He would not like players to commit harsh fouls."

He added: "I could probably have saved some key goals during the season, including in the Champions League qualifying games, if I had committed fouls to stop players scoring."

Hajduk Split are reigning Croatian champions but this season they failed to qualify for the Champions League and are currently fifth in the Croatian league.

Thanks, D.

RE: God softens football hardman

Please. Isn't this the same religion that founded the Crusades? The guy has just gone soft.
