Eriksson Backs Hargreaves Price

Eriksson Backs Hargreaves Price

The latest person to air his views in the Owen Hargreaves-saga is former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson who believes the Canadian-born midfielder is worth £20M.

Of course, Sven's credit in England has reached an all-time low after the team's, to put it mildly, mediocre performance in Germany. And I believe his opinion won't rush Fergie to splash the cash on Hargreaves but let's hear what he's got to say.

'I always believed he would be a great player and I am very happy for him because now all the biggest clubs in Europe want him.

'Football can be crazy with transfer prices. But if anyone is worth £20m, then he is.

'He's that good and he will get better and better and better so his value could rise - he's still quite young. People criticised him but I always believed in him.'

At least the last sentence is absolutely true. He never lost faith in Hargreaves, that's obvious.

Sven is just sayin that now he has come good - Be honest with yourself - Sven ain't got a clue. Look at his striker selections for the World Cup, which left us toothless. Thats not to say Hargreaves aint a great, cos he is - But not cos Sven says so.

And he's still not worth 20m. Fifteen, or maybe seventeen but not twenty.

that was 14,6m which could go up to 18,6 subject to some specific clauses. Yes, I'd pay that much for him but obviously the decision does not rest with me.

Eriksson who?Oh is that the manager that took a twelve year old boy to play at the world cup but then didn't have any balls to put him?And left England with a damn giraffe up front? Let's be honest, his opinion is worthless.

so you saying your midfield is worth £38m ? now i have to disagree, but both english players so you have to admire Fergie for putting together the amount of english players.

Hargreaves works hard. Very hard and he's a very good defensive midfielder now. But that is one of few things Sven ever got right. £20m seems extortionate.

hargreaves in there would give carrick more time to concentrate on his attacking play and passing (when scholes retires) so i think getting hargreaves would be good

I don't evenwant to think of Scholes retiring, Carrick ain't nowhere near Scholes' ability and Hargreaves at 20 million is way overpriced, he's a good player but he ain't world class and for that kind of money (basically our whole budget) i'd be wanting a world class player like Pirlo at Milan.
