Further reasons to love football

Having just sent risque pictures of Fabio Cannavaro to a friend, I now wish to write about someone’s mother-in-law. Specifically, the mother-in-law of Slaven Bilic.
Poland coach Leo Beenhakker believes his side have a chance of qualifying from Group B – but only if his opposite number Slaven Bilic fields his mother-in-law in the Croatia line-up.

For his part Croatia boss Bilic insists that the Poles still have a great chance of going through, with or without his mother-in-law on the field.

“Well, I’m divorced,” Bilic responded. “He (Beenhakker) is a great manager. He’s playing games, of course, because they have a good team.
“They were almost equal to Germany (in their opening match). They conceded easy goals but they had enough chances to score.

“They have a chance and they have a team, so he doesn’t need my mother-in-law.”

Very well, but if Bilic is divorced is his mother-in-law still his mother-in-law? And maybe she’s a really good footballer – did you ever think of that, Beenhakker? Did you?
