Saha Is Still Alive

Saha Is Still Alive

Louis Saha is still alive and, according to David Gill, not out for the rest of the season.

Oh, it would not be a really trademark month for United if there weren't Saha injury stories. The Frenchman missed the 6-0 devastation of Newcastle and some papers reported he is set to miss the rest of the season with ligament damage.

It was surprising to say the least, considering that at the last press conference, Fergie stated that the striker should be OK for the Newcastle game. However, it's Saha we were talking about so nothing can be ruled out.

Fortunately, the club hurried to deny these reports as none other than David Gill confirmed Saha's had only a slight knock. However, there was no timeline on his return - as far as we know, he could miss two months or be back for the Reading game.

So, yet again, nothing is certain around King Louis. You may remember that during the summer he was reported to sustain a serious injury that would keep him out for six months. Later it was denied and he indeed came back after two months' absence.

But this, combined with another mysterious Saha injury story, led me to ask why is it that everything is so vague around his injuries, that there are rumours, contradicting stories in the press? Why is that we know nothing for certain?

I mean, in the case of Rooney it's always so easy. He is set to be out for six weeks according to the club, then you know he'll probably be back after four weeks. Such clarity is something I would appreciate in the case of our often brilliant but more often injured Frenchman. At least we know he's alive.
