I’d want birthday and Xmas cards if that’s all I was paid

COMMENT: University has to prove it offers value for money

Have your say

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is upset that his club didn’t do anything to mark his birthday.

Despite being wealthy and having fans singing his name each week, all he really wants is to be loved by his employers.

It must have been really difficult for him.

No doubt the lack of a card or a cake ruined his day.

I know, because when my birthday at work passed off without so much as a mention, I cried all the way home.

How could they be so heartless?

So I can see where Yaya is coming from.

I mean, he only earns £220,000 a week basic.

I’d want birthday and Christmas cards if that’s all I was getting paid. Poor fella.
