Toulon Boss Mocks Dan Carter Over Japan Move

One-legged players.

Outspoken Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal has hit out and mocked All Blacks great Dan Carter for his decision to quit France for Japan to ‘make money against one-legged opponents.’

The 35-year-old legendary playmaker was offered a contract extension with the Parisian club, but instead has signed a two-year deal with the Kobe Steelers, which starts when the current French season ends in June next year.

But Boudjellal took exception to the move in a video column on Eurosport.

“Dan Carter told us this week that he is 35, 36, and is leaving for Japan. But it must also be said that there is a beautiful financial project in a league where there are 10 matches including eight to play against one-legged players. All will be well, there is no problem,” Laughed Boudjellal

“This is not something that makes a rugby player dream of going to Japan. This is just dreaming of his tax inspector.”

“It is normal that he wanted, for his old age, to have a more juicy contract,”
