Meneja wa Arsenal Arsene Wenger amesema "hakika hatosoma" kitabu ambacho
meneja wa Manchester United Jose Mourinho amekiandika ambacho kuna
sehemu kimekaririwa kikisema Mourinho 'atauvunja' uso wa Wenger.
Mourinho mara kadhaa alizozana na Wenger wakati akiwa meneja wa Chelsea,
na hata wakati fulani akisema ni "mtaalam wa kushindwa". "Mimi
nazungungumza kuhusu soka tu-- ndio pekee ninachofanya," amesema Wenger,
66, siku ya Ijumaa alipoulizwa kuhusu kitabu hicho.
1. My son, if you keep spending on a woman and she never asked you if
you’re saving or investing, and she keeps enjoying the attention, don’t
marry her. 2. My son, a woman could be a good wife to you, some
could be a good mother to your children but if you’ve found a woman like
a mother to you, your children and your family, please don’t let her
go. 3. My son, don’t confine the position of your wife to the
kitchen, where did you get that from? Even in our days, we had
farm-lands where they worked every morning . . . that was our office.
4. My son, if I tell you that you’re the head of the house, don’t look
at your pocket; look if you will see a smile on your wife’s face. 5.
My son, if you want to have a long life, let your wife be in-charge of
your salary, it will be difficult for her to spend it when she’s aware
of the home needs and bills to pay but if it’s in your care, she will
keep you asking even when all has been spent. 6. My son, don’t ever
beat your woman, the pain in her body is nothing to be compared to the
wound on her heart and that means you may be in trouble living with a
wounded woman. 7. My son, now that you’re married, if you live a bachelor kind of life with your wife, you will soon be single again.
8. My son, in our days, we had many wives and many children because of
our large farm-lands and many harvests, there are hardly any land for
farming anymore, so embrace your woman closely. 9. My son, under the
cocoa tree that I did meet your mother could be your eateries and
restaurants of nowadays, but remember, the closet thing we did there was
to embrace each other. 10. My son, don’t be carried away when you
start making more money, instead of spending on those tiny legs that
never knew how hard you worked to get it, spend it on that woman that
stood by you all along. 11. My son, when I threw little stones or
whistled at the window of your mother father’s house, to call her out,
it was not for sex, it was because I missed her so much. 12. My son, remember, when you say your wife has changed, there could be something you’ve stopped doing too.
13. My son, your mother, Asake rode the bicycle with me before I bought
that tortoise car outside there, any woman that won’t endure with you
in your little beginning should not enjoy your riches. 14. My son,
don’t compare your wife to any woman, there are ways she’s enduring you
too and has she ever compared you to any man? 15. My son, there is
this thing you people call feminism, well, if a woman claim to have
equal right with you in the house, divide all the bills into two equal
parts, take one part and ask her to start paying the other part. 16.
My son, I met your mother a virgin and I took more yams to her father,
if you don’t meet your wife a virgin, don’t blame her, what I didn’t
tell you is that our women had prestige. 17. My son, I didn’t send
your sisters to school because I was foolish like many to think a female
child won’t extend my family name, please don’t make that mistake, the
kind of female achievers I see nowadays has made the male-gender an
ordinary tag. 18. My son, your mother have once locked up the cloth I
was wearing and almost tore it because she was angry, I did not raise
my hand to beat her because of a day like this, so that I can be proud
to tell you that I never for once beat your mother. 19. My son, in
our days, our women had more of natural beauty, though I wouldn’t lie to
you, some had minor painting of their appellation mostly on their arms,
the ones you people now call tattoo, but don’t forget that they didn’t
expose any part of their body like your women of nowadays. 20. My
son, your mother and I are not interested in what happens in your
marriage, try to handle issues without always coming to us. 21. My
son, remember I bought your mother’s first sewing machine for her, help
your wife achieve her dreams just as you’re pursuing yours. 22. My
son, don’t stop taking care of me and your mother, it’s a secret of
growing old and having children to take care of you too. 23. My son, pray with your family, there is a tomorrow you don’t know, talk to God that knows everything, everyday.
