Thank you Luka!
We adored our little maestro, perhaps more than any other foreign player to grace White Hart Lane both past and present. He has royally screwed us! There is a way of going about business but the guy just has no class!
Last season within hours of the first Chelsea bid and Luka is releasing press statements expressing his desire to leave the club. He had only just signed a 5 and a half year contract just 6 months prior! He talks of a gentlemens agreement between himself and Levy but I don't buy a single word of it, why? Because it wasn't in his contract and if it's something he wanted there would have been a high valuation placed in the said contract allowing him to leave for the righ price.
This is where I have lost all and any love for a player I once adored. If he goes about business in the right way then we can get a very good fee for him. Ronaldo is slated for his conduct on the field but off the field I had nothing but respect for him and the way he conducted himself! Fergie asked him for one more season and nearly 50 goals later, a CL final, an EPL title and 70-80 million later everyone left happy. Both clubs, players and fans.
We as fans and as a club that took a huge gamble and record transfer fee on a player that was deemed by all as to lightweight for the league deserve far better than this! Now it's almost impossible to drive his price up and in all probability we see less money than Arsenal do for a player who has just 12 months left on his contract!
If he had just behaved with a little class then maybe we could of held the same love for him that United fans still have for Cristiano.
