I’ll caveat this post with the acknowledgment that I read this on 606 several years ago.
Someone posted that they met Anderton in a bar and asked him how he can sleep at night being paid so much when he’s never fit. Apparently his response was to get out his wallet, wave a wad of cash in the guy’s face, and say “this is how”.
Could well be bollocks, but a strange thing to make up.
Talented player though.
I've heard a few anecdotes like this. One is Jason Dozzell responding to someone taunting him in a club with "I make more in a week than you do in a year!" I figure most are probably bollocks - that one because there's no food reference : )
Apparently the one about Kieron Dyer burning paper notes in front of a bunch of punters in a club is true though!
