‘Luca pulled out a red card’: Coach after PM’s tackle gives verdict
The coach of little Luca has admitted that the 7-year-old is loving the attention after being bulldozed by Scott Morrison in Tasmania.
Sam Crawford, the academy coach of the Devonport Strikers Club, told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast that he didn’t expect such a big turn out to the community event.
“When we heard that the Prime Minister was going to come down, we knew there was going to be some media coverage,
“We didn’t quite think it would turn into this,” he said.
In a hilarious chat with the coach and organiser behind the election event and soccer match, Mr Crawford said that the players were getting involved in the election theme themselves.
“The kids loved it. They were reciting some of the election taglines to (Scott Morrison) across the pitch,” he laughed.
“It’s not going to be easy against Albanese was mentioned a few times, so it’s definitely sticking!”
