Do you ever get the feeling of déjà vu guys? If not then I think you will do now as it is being reported that Kanu is refusing to sign the new contract - which as we know has been on the table since January - because he wants a 2 year deal, not the 1 that he has...
He is being quoted as having told Brila FM, which I assume is an African radio station: 'the true situation is that I had my contract with me since January, but I have refused to put pen-to-paper just yet.
'I don't want to put pen on something I believe is not what I deserve.
'I cannot sign for just one year when I have done so much for the club. Winning the FA Cup and playing well during the season should qualify me for more than a one-year extension.
'I believe for them to really appreciate my efforts with the team last season, they have to top it up with one more year. That`s where we are now and we are still discussing.'
Well 'King Kanu' if you do not like the offer - which was already something that had pampered to your previous wishes - you could always go back to the park we found you in when we took you on when no one else wanted you!
If you remember we had this trouble last summer, he would not sign a 1 year contract, so a compromise was eventually met where we gave him a year with the option of a 2nd if he played enough games, he did so he triggered this clause but will not sign it as he wants 2 years again - is he taking the p**s now or what?
No doubt he is trying to get out of pre season training for a 3rd year running, but as much as I appreciate him scoring the goals that got us into, and then won us the FA cup I would tell him to sign what he has got or leave this time. He knew the score this time last year.
Harry Redknapp says that he will not be held to ransom as far as signing players goes, so why should this be any different as far as offering players new terms is also concerned?
My own thinking is that this time we cannot give into his threats, it is time to say sign the contract or sod off if it is not good enough for you...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
