Saha Fit... Really?

Louis Saha missed United's FA Cup quarter-final defeat on Saturday with a knee injury. He felt his knee in the morning than in the warm-up and it was decided he would not be risked.

On Monday, he was training with the first team again and he's apparently fit and ready to play against Derby. Good news as he still has a lot to offer I think.

The reason I wrote this article is, apart from giving you the news, that I wonder whether he will pull out of the match again. So far, I always gave Saha the benefit of the doubt, I always accepted that he's only terribly unlucky and he's not to be castigated for it.

However, if once again he will be training with the team during the whole week than pulls out at the last minute I will have to question his commitment to the cause and his bravery. If he's not prepared to risk himself due to fear of injury then, cruel it may sound, the best would be to retire. Professional football always carries the risk of injury so if he does not want to quit then he has to face it.

Of course I might be wrong and it's true that he's been unlucky again. But we'll find out soon I guess.

He is a good player. I would hope that he doesn't exaggerate his injuries, I just can't stand people wasting talent. Unfortunately though, it's expensive to keep a player who rarely plays...

fit enough to pick up his next injury perhaps :-)
