Louis Saha on Ruud van Nistelrooy: Uh-oh

Mmmm, Louis, can you feel the hair-blower treatment coming? You’ve just been a Manchester United player for a couple of months, and already you are bad-mouthing your peers? Ouch.

Of course, everything that Louis Saha says is true (that Ruud has little big-match experience, that he never scores from outside the box, that he never takes free-kicks, and doesn’t play much of a part in the team’s collective play). He could have added that his frequent theatrics and constant fouling of the opposition’s defense makes his game even less palatable.

But I am not sure that Louis Saha is in the best position to make such comments at this point in time… Yes, he seems to have great abilities and might turn out to be a great Manchester United player himself. But criticizing your team mates is not exactly the best way to build team spirit and enhance “collective play”, is it?
