Saha Has A Future At United

Saha Has A Future At United

Saha fired United into the Carling Cup semi-finals with his double at Birmingham on Tuesday, ending 18 months of injury hell with the Old Trafford outfit.

The 27-year-old's efforts proved why Ferguson splashed out £12.8million to lure him north from Fulham almost two years ago, and why West Ham boss Alan Pardew is thought to be prepared to invest almost two-thirds of that sum to take him to Upton Park.

It seems unlikely Saha will keep his place for the Boxing Day encounter with West Brom as Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney are both due to return.

Ferguson: 'A fit Louis Saha will get us goals. The boy has been really unlucky with injuries but we know what he is capable of when he is fit, so having him back after another four or five months out is a big bonus.

'It all depends on what happens injury wise, but we have four games in eight days and I would imagine everyone in the squad would be involved at some point.

'I am certainly pencilling him in for the Burton cup tie on January 8 and hopefully he will get something in between.'

Personally I think we have an excellent variety of strikers, Van Nistelrooy, Solksjaer, Saha, Alan Smith (was a striker at Leeds), Rossi and Rooney, but I think we have too many strikers, even though I would hate to see any of them leave the club. The manager will have to find a way of getting them all to play first team action once all of them are injury free.
