“It’s Great Being a Dead Footballer,” (Daily Mail Exclusive With Marc-Vivien Foe)

Following The Daily Mail’s uncanny knack at snagging interviews with footballers despite ever actually speaking to them, the paper recently bagged another hot exclusive with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy victim and former Premier League midfield dynamo Marc-Vivien Foe.

Speaking with the Mail from the grave across a myriad of topics, Foe was keen to point out the virtues of “being a dead footballing icon of the modern age” without ever touching on the topic of Paul Pogba, Juventus or anything else likely to be true.

Reminiscing about his playing days at Lens, West Ham United, Lyon and Manchester City, Foe even touched on Manchester United’s purported 3 million offer for him back in 1998 (while alive). “Me and Duncan Edwards (former Manchester United ‘Busby Babe’ and Munich air disaster fatality) often have a good laugh about what might have been”, says Foe to telepathic Mail on Sunday reporter Rob Draper.

The timing couldn’t have been better for The Mail however as Foe shapes up to take part in his side’s Dead Africa XI Vs Dead Rest of the World match at the Pearly Gates this coming Sunday.

“They’re bound to give us all they’ve got”, said Foe, before highlighting threats like George Best, Eusebio and Alfredo de Stefano. “But we’ve got enough ‘spirit’ to match them with players like Patrick Ekeng and Senzo Meyiwa in our ranks to nullify any ghastly threat.”

Unsurprisingly his side will have to wait some time before adding the ageless Nwankwo Kanu and Obafemi Martins to their ranks, but Mail reporter Draper remained confident of securing another exclusive with the former Premiership strikers without the use of a telephone, email account or any other possible form of communication.
