Perhaps I’m just naive, but it hurts every time I hear something like this.

In five years I’d like to say I’d be with a big club trying to win trophies.

Especially from Clint Dempsey, who has been so impressive for Fulham this season.

I suppose you can’t expect too much loyalty from footballers these days, but it would be nice if they’d refrain from referring to ‘big clubs’ in comparison to one they play for.
