"I’ll take the tube around the city, I have an Oyster card, I’ll be ‘normal’ and, when you travel round, you see how people live, the stresses in their lives. Some footballers might not realise what’s going on around them but there are others like me who know they’re privileged and lucky to be living this life. I’m benefiting from a difficult past, a good grounding. That has formed my attitude on the pitch. I give everything, I try all the time, because I realise I have an opportunity. Life’s simple as a footballer."

– QPR midfielder Stéphane Mbia speaking some sense, pretty rare for a Premier League player. The rest of his interview is well worth reading for some insight into his background in Cameroon and sensible take on adjusting to life in the glitz of England’s top division. (via pitchinvasion)
