‘They call us fat’ – Tyler Adams exposes ‘wild’ remarks against Americans in Europe while playing for Bournemouth

Teasing is an integral part of sports, and soccer is no exception. Fans, whether in the stadium or online, are always taking friendly shots at opposing fans or even players. But who would have thought that there would be blatant banter against the Americans in various parts of Europe? Take a listen to USMNT star Tyler Adams, who went through a lot during his time playing for Bournemouth in England.

Before his country was eliminated in the group stages of the 2024 Copa America, Adams sat down for a quick interview with Goal USA, moderated by former Canadian player and young digital creator Raheem Taylor-Parkes. The ex-captain was asked if there is any wild way the Europeans joke with the Americans above in Europe. Interestingly, the midfielder replied: “They just call us fat. Everyone Only says, “You’re fat.” And then, “Why do you eat so much fast food?” and things like that.”

Adams, however, was quick to shoot because of these jokes back to the European champions. The 25-year-old, who played for the English clubs Leeds and now Bournemouth, as well as with German club RB Leipzig announced that fast food queues in Germany and England are similar to those in America. “If you drive past a McDonald’s in the UK or In Germany and it is full. It is the same,” he chuckled.

Adams should keep his eyes peeled because the English fans will be waiting for him when he returns to Bournemouth next month. However, they shouldn’t expect too much from the US star as he has just come through a pretty heartbreaking chapter.
