Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs has been smacked down by a US newspaper after he demanded it remove an article about him buying a new house.
Mr Fuchs was told ‘we’re not removing s***’ by the New York Observer after it published an article about his purchase of the £1.6 million townhouse in New York.
In a letter to his lawyers the newspaper said that that since the Revolutionary War of 1783 ‘we Americans no longer take orders from you’.
The newspaper dismissed Mr Fuchs’ claim that it was breaching his privacy under the Human Rights Act and accused him of ‘colonialism by lawfare’.
Quite, the Human Rights Act, with the top court being the ECHR, doesn’t have much to say about what Americans may or may not do.
Bugger off is entirely the correct response.
