“My father told me ‘are you stupid?'”

Freddie
Woodman (23 years old) does not have the usual hobbies that most soccer players, hooked on video games and others. To the goalkeeper of Newcastle, loaned in the Swansea, he likes fishing and a call while practicing his hobby almost cost him a dislike.

In an interview with ., the meta tells what happened to him last summer while he was on a fishing lake with his cousin Nathan. Swansea wanted to continue counting on him, but for that Woodman had to reach an agreement and renew with Newcastle. Negotiations were stalled and he decided to take the day to go fishing and relax.

But suddenly everything was precipitated. “My representative called me, he was furious. He asked me where I was and said I should go immediately to London to sign the contract. I answered no. Then my father called me and said: ‘But are you stupid? Why are you doing this just today? ‘

“Everything happened very fast. The day before there was no chance that the case would be solved … In the end my manager sent me the papers by e-mail and I signed them electronically while I was sitting by the lake fishing and laughing at everything with my cousin. It was fun”.
