An MLS Soccer Star Throws All of His Teammates Under the Bus

An MLS Soccer Star Throws All of His Teammates Under the Bus

Telling your teammates when they're not playing well in an effort to try and motivate them to play better is the sign of a true leader. Telling your teammates that they're simply not as good as you and that they'll never be able to play on your level? Well, that's the sign of a true douche. And that's exactly what New York Red Bulls centre back/defensive midfielder Rafa Marquez did yesterday after his team lost 3-1 to Real Salt Lake.

"I'm focusing on really performing at my highest level," said Marquez, who has been a big disappointment for the Red Bulls this season despite signing a contract before the season that made him the third-highest paid MLS player. "That doesn't mean that the whole backline can perform at that same level, so that's a problem. I think this is a team game and unfortunately there isn't an equal level between my teammates and I."

Ouch. You really had to take it there, Rafa? Don't expect too many high-fives in the locker room today or, well, ever, dude douche. [via The Beautiful Blog]
