Tampa – Football superstar Tom Brady can not understand the lack of understanding about his departure from the New England Patriots and the switch to the weak Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
«I was never interested in my legacy. I didn’t give a shit, ”said the 42-year-old quarterback in a radio interview with US talkmaster Howard Stern. «I’m just not like that. It is not my character. So why did I choose another place? Because it was just time. » With the Patriots, he had achieved everything there in the 20 years. “Nobody will ever be able to take that away from me.”
Brady has made it to the Super Bowl nine times with the Patriots and won the world’s most important football game six times. His new team, the Buccaneers, were last in the playoffs twelve years ago.
Brady also disagreed with reports that he no longer had a good relationship with Patriots coach legend Bill Belichik. «There are so many wrong assumptions about our relationship or how he thinks about me. I know how he really thinks about me. »
Brady said he wasn’t going to respond to all the rumors. Only: «He only does what he is responsible for as a coach and that is to get the best player for his team. Not just in the short term, but also in the long term. »
