Rattled Age Hareide went to war with David Friel of the Scottish Sun after his side’s 1-0 defeat at Hacken today.
A goal from 34-year-old Martin Ericsson in the 78th minute sent Malmo to defeat with Hareide fielding a strong side including Marcus Rosenberg and Enoch Adu who both missed the defeat from Celtic due to suspension.
Since the final whistle on Wednesday night a number of claims have been made by the Malmo camp including a quote that the Celtic players were pigs while Hareide claimed that Ronny Deila’s side couldn’t last 90 minutes.
Reporting on Hareide’s outburst today Expressen website said: “When a journalist from The Scottish Sun then wanted to ask a question angered Hareide added: “I do not answer, you will find anyway at your own headlines. Coming from the Sun? Then you get no headlines by me. You will find them anyway,” hissed MFF coach.
“If you are a journalist must tell the truth. It’s your duty”.
The journalist, David Friel, then asked what Hareide said. “You know what I’m talking about. You read well your own newspaper.
David Friel was surprised saying: “I do not understand anything. He explained not exactly what the problem was. If he talks to me so maybe we can work it out, but what I know, we have not written anything strange about Malmo,” he said.
Hareide will be obliged to speak at Monday’s pre-match press conference where it’s certain that the Scottish Sun will be following up on today’s rant.
