Gaby Has No Brains At All?

Gaby Has No Brains At All?

Gabriel Heinze is surprised at Manchester United's anti-Liverpool stance. Jesus, man, where have you spent the last three years?

I don't think that a man who speaks English and knows a little bit about football and works in England would not know about the bitter rivalry between United and Liverpool. Yet it seems I'm mistaken, for one Argentinian by the name of Gabriel Heinze appear to be baffled by it.

The Premier League ruled that the letter he had received from the club constitutes no legal obligation for United and therefore it is in vain that Liverpool are willing to meet our valuation of the player. Heinze does not give up, still driven by the strange desire to join our friends down the M62.

'My fight is for freedom to negotiate with any club,' Heinze told the Daily Mail.

Gaby, you surely understand how your contract works? At least your agent could inform you about it. You cannot negotiate with anyone until United agree to go ahead with it. If Fergie wants to do so, he may leave you rot in the reserves for two more years. Yet he's willing to let you go - to almost anywhere, except to Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

No one wants to see you at the club any more, dear Gaby, I think I can speak for all my fellow United fans. But as you have a contract, you can't decide where you will go. You can choose from a variety of clubs but foreign ones.

The interesting thing is that he seems to understand this.

'United never wanted me to leave for one of the big clubs, but this anti-Liverpool clause is incredible.'

Yes, they never wanted you to leave for any of our rivals. As for the anti-Liverpool stance being incredible... Man, open your eyes and your ears! Recall the chants heard in any of the derbies you played in. You will surely realise that this anti-Liverpool stance is an organic part of Manchester United. Someone who's been playing here for three years should be aware of this.

Leave for Lyon or Juventus, Gaby. It will be better for everyone concerned.

"If Fergie wants to do so, he may leave you rot in the reserves for two more years" Actually he can't, Gaby can leave at the end of the season when he has the option to buy back his contract according to the new EU rules. He didn't do it this summer because that rule can only be used a couple of weeks after the season ended.

His naivete is difficult to believe. I dont see why he is making things difficult for himself.

Fair play to Heinze for having the balls to stand up to the incredibly petty ferguson. I'm glad to hear he will continue to fight against the slavery imposed on him, purely because of the manc managers over-inflated ego.

Slavery? Jeez, I wish I was a slave if these are the conditions these days, £30k or more a week, at a world famous club, totally pampered. Not a Utd fan, but get a reality check man!

I don't see why Heinze didn't move to Lyon to be honest. It is a slap in the face to the fans in my honest opinion. This time it is stated in the contract but to me it is an unwritten code. Out of respect I would have moved to Lyon.
