Transfer Tales Louis Saha relives dramatic switch to Man United



Chris Coleman: 

“The speculation is not going to go away – I understand that. From our point of view, if we sell Louis Saha at any price in January then I’m cutting my own throat. I’ve explained that to my chairman and he is under the same impression. I’m under no illusions – he may not be here next season. He’s banging in goals left, right and centre so, if a club does come in for him with a massive offer over the summer, then he may move on. But we’d be committing suicide if we sold him right now.”


Alex Ferguson: 

“Three years ago he played against us in the FA Cup and did very well and that is when our interest began. When Fulham came into the Premiership it was impossible to do any business at that point but we kept looking at him and this year we decided to make an offer. That was refused but it started the negotiations and we are delighted that we have been able to secure his transfer. Louis has two good feet, he is very quick and aggressive and is good in the air. They are great assets to have and a little bit different from the players we have at the moment.”


Alex Hayes (Sunday Tribune): ‘Ferguson must be hoping that Saha, who signed a five-and-a-half year contract, will continue in the same vein of form at United. Despite their second place in the Premiership and next month’s second round Champions League rubber against Porto, Ferguson’s men have been unusually goal-shy this season. When Ruud van Nistelrooy does not score, as has been the case for the last four matches, no one seems capable of stepping into the Dutchman’s shoes.’
