Langer also lashed out at anonymous sources who leaked against him to journalists towards the end of his reign.
“Everyone was being nice to my face but I was reading about this stuff and half of it, I swear to God and on my kids’ lives, I could not believe that is what was making the papers,” Langer said in the interview.
“A lot of journalists use the word ‘source’. I would say, change that word to ‘coward’.
“A coward says, not a source.
“Because what do you mean a source says? They’ve either got an axe to grind with someone and they won’t come and say it to your face, or they’re just leaking stuff for their own agenda.”
