Saha Will Fight

Saha Will Fight

Louis Saha's injury-proneness might mean that his place in the team is increasingly under threat but the striker refuses to throw in the towel yet.

Saha has not started a Premiership game since... well, my memory does not stretch back that far. After a promising 2006, he's once again proved that for all his footballing skills (which are aplenty), he's a liability.

Journalists understand that Ferguson is fed up with his niggling injuries and prepare to get rid of him as well as bringing in a new top-class attacker.

However, the former Fulham man is determined to stay and fight for his place.

'I want to stay.' he said and. When asked about the rumours about other strikers, notably Eto'o, Berbatov and Torres, he remained defiant.

'I know nothing. I love this club and I don't want to leave.

'If they are saying other good strikers are coming to United I find that good, if that helps us defend our title and win others next year.'

I'd be completely against selling Saha, for I'm an optimist: I seriously believe that his injury nightmare is bound to end one day or another and if he manages to remain fit for at least three successive months, he'll be a great asset.

But of course, you cannot build a football team on hopes so Fergie will probably look for more solid foundations. Still, that does not mean he should sell Saha - though it seems very likely, especially if Rossi won't be loaned out again.

Question is, who´d want him as he is utter shiiiite. No offence, but he is useless. honestly.

rooneyisgod - are u serious?? defoe is awful, we need saha who is quality and gives us something different upfront, i mean who knew 12 months on we'd all be saying rudd van who? i mean i know he has his off days, but when saha is on his game he is unplayable, he reminds me alot of henry

Ah now be honest he's nowhere near shevchenko quality, for all we know sheva could be on fire next season and if he is he'll easily bang in 25 goals he is a true predatory striker and as for saha he is good but he's not world class and as we are one if the worlds biggest clubs i think we could do a lot better, tevez at west ham being an example
