Kranjcar 'should' play again this season
When Niko Kranjcar was injured at the weekend, especially as he was stretchered off with what looked a serious injury, I would suspect that most of us expected we would not see him play at Fratton again - well not for us anyway, as he is almost certain to leave in the summer.
Pompey were quick to stress damage 'was not as bad as first feared' and following an X-ray yesterday Paul Hart said he was 'hopeful he will be back sooner rather than later', with our club doctor Nigel Sellars saying 'it seems clear it is only soft tissue damage and hopefully not long-term'.
Clearly he will miss the Manyoo game tomorrow, and I would suspect the crucial Newcastle one on Monday - anything else would be pure guess work at the moment, but it looks like we 'should' see him again this season, which, for me, will be a bonus as he has been impressive in recent weeks, even if we have been somewhat 'accommodating him', which has to a degree impacted on others, in a somewhat negative way...
Kanu wants to stay...again!
We are at that time of year again when Kanu starts to look towards his future, and he is still hopeful that it will be with Pompey next season.
Yet again at the weekend the Nigerian showed what an asset he can be playing a role from the subs bench, as once again, as he has several times this season, he came on and made quite an impression - problem is he will be another year older and another year slower next season, I still find it hard to believe that he is only 32...
Kanu has to be on big money, he is probably one of our top earners, so he has no chance of getting a new deal...unless he takes a massive pay-cut!
He said 'I love Portsmouth and I want to play for them', I suspect that if he is to have any chance of playing for us again beyond the end of May he will have to take a 50% pay-cut, but I am not sure he would do so, that or a 'pay as you play' style deal? A lucrative move to the Middle East or Australia awaits methinks...
Kanu does view Old Trafford as his 'lucky ground' so he, and we, will be hoping this can be the case again tomorrow when we face Manyoo!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
