This. I swear a small minority of Fed fans think he's a deity and could fly if he wanted to.
The chances of Roger being a pro footballer are tiny - the chances of him being better than the best player in the world are so infinitessimally small that they might as well be zero.
As far as I'm aware, the only member of the top 4 who was anywhere near being a pro footballer was Murray, who was offered trials with Glasgow Rangers at age 14 - and it's almost certain that he wouldn't have made it as a pro footballer either.
