He’s speaking again

Piers Morgan has fired back at Megan Rapinoe’s claims that her recent injury is “proof” that there isn’t a God by suggesting the opposite.

Rapinoe’s final game as a professional footballer lasted for just six minutes after she went down with a suspected achilles injury.

When speaking to the press after the game, Rapinoe said that her unfortunate final act as a player was “f****d up”.

She told Fox News: “I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a god, like, this is proof that there isn’t.

“This is f**ked up. It’s just f**ked up. Six minutes in and I eat my achilles.”

Morgan on the other hand wasn’t as sympathetic towards the 38-year-old.

Wiring in his opinion column on the New York Post, he started off by saying: “A miracle happened Saturday night: I felt sorry for Megan Rapinoe.

“Yes, when the world’s most irritating sportsman (I refuse to say “sportswoman” about someone who refuses to accurately say what a woman is) collapsed in torn-Achilles agony in just the third minute of her last-ever professional soccer game, a tiny twinge of empathy enveloped me.

“How cruel sports can be, I thought, even to its best exponents.

“But it didn’t take long for this spectacularly graceless woke queen to snap me out of my momentary heartfelt relapse and say something that p****d off me — and most of America — yet again.”

The Talk TV presenter continued by recalling Rapinoe’s quotes before adding: “I’d say it’s more like definitive proof that God does exist — and shares my view that this arrogant, pink-haired, self-promoting prima donna didn’t deserve the glorious send-off she so desperately craved.

“And given she thinks what happened to her was somehow all God’s fault, let me offer her some biblical words of advice from Proverbs 16:18:

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”

The 38-year-old’s retirement marks an end to one of the most successful careers in both men’s and women’s football. 

During her time as a player, Rapinoe scored over 100 goals at club and international level as well as collecting a Ballon d’Or Féminin trophy and the 2019 Best FIFA Women’s Player.

She also won the women’s World Cup twice in 2015 and 2019.
