I guess I was not really surprised when Sir Alex Ferguson came out and said he thought the signing of Robbie Keane for 20m was the surprise transfer of the summer. He clearly does not believe Keane was worth that amount. As Robbie has now come out and said today, “Football is about opinions and everyone is entitled to their own.”
How many times in the past have we seen managers talk about players from other teams and those same players they talk ‘badly’ about come back to haunt them? We do not have to look too far; look at how Rafa bad talked Drogba last season before the second leg of the Champions League semi-final and then Drogba punished us! It is only natural for a player to react when another manager talks about them. Now Robbie has the perfect opportunity to show Ferguson who he is and I can bet you Robbie is going to get off the mark this Saturday and score the winner against Manchester United.
