Saha's United Career Is Over

Louis Saha will be out for about six months following his latest knee operation that could mean his United career is over.

Saha started just four games in 2007 after a great start to the season as his injury curse struck again. Selling him was very much on the table as he became liability but now it's almost sure we won't be able to sell him in the summer.

'Louis has had surgery in America and he won't be on the field now for a few months,' Saha's agent Ranko Stojic told M.E.N. Sport.

'He's been unlucky and it is very important now that he gets back to 100 per cent fitness.

'I don't know when he will be able to start training again but he is looking at being back around November or December. But it is going to be a while.'


I stated countless times that I rated Saha very highly and I thought he should not be sold. However, after another setback one must conclude that we simply can't rely on him.

I wish him a speedy recovery - he might even play a part in the team next season after his recovery but he won't survive next summer as a United player. He'll be definitely sold I believe as a club like United cannot afford to keep a player who cannot stay fit for two consecutive months.

His injury means that my earlier comments about a boring summer should be thrown out into the dustbin: we'll certainly move up a gear in our efforts to sign a striker. Giuseppe Rossi will have a big job to do next season I believe...

united4life
yeah i think this will deffinately mean a new striker but i dont think sahas career is over it all depends on how he recovers
rooneyisgod
Need to get a striker
mattweeden
rooneyisgod: I'm afraid it does not depend on how he recovers. He had recovered very often and soon broke down again. there's no evidence to suggest he'll ever get over hs curse. It would be better for him if he went.

Sell him back to Fulham and he will probably come good again!!!!!!

The only problem is who would take him? If he stayed in England its inevitable he'd come back to haunt us some day and if he went to French who could afford his wages, fee, ambition etc
