Gill: United Did Nothing Wrong In Pogba Case

Gill: United Did Nothing Wrong In Pogba Case

Every time there is some controversy, it seems that Manchester United must be dragged into it. Eduardo (and Eboue) clearly, obviously, pathetically dived and were rightly lambasted for it; Rooney went down in a tangle with a Slovenian player and it's called a dive, even though it was as much a dive as it was a penalty: no way in hell.

And of course there is Chelsea's punishment for inducing a breach of contract to sign Gael Kakuta from RC Lens. United, apparently, are also under threat because of our move for Paul Pogba, Le Havre's outstanding talent. The French club accused United of all sorts of evil things but David Gill refuted their allegations.

'It's not intimidation but they can't insult us,' Gill said.

'We are not intimidating Le Havre, we have no intention of intimidating Le Havre, they can take whatever action they fell appropriate,' he said at a meeting of the European Clubs Association.

'We have done everything by the book, we are confident in that, they can take whatever action, we won't be insulted by Le Havre.

'It's an insult by Le Havre to suggest that Manchester United and employees of Manchester United have paid the parents and bought the player's parents a house.

'We will not accept the good name of Manchester United being trawled around websites and the press saying we have done these things we are not allowed to do.

'If they want to take action, they can take action, we will defend our case in the football bodies, we are very comfortable about doing that.'


United made themselves clear; I think that Gill cannot be accused with being vague. There is no evidence that the club did anything wrong (by the rulebook, mind you, if we drag morality into this then we'll have a debate leading to nowhere). Now it's Le Havre's turn: they either have to take action as they threatened or back off which, at this point, would be quite shameful.

I think you left out an important piece from what he said...i think he made a comment about how our player was never under contract and thus no breach of contract occured however in chelsea's case and maybe even the new case against city they inticed the player to breach their existing agreement
