Not for the first time, well at least 'allegedly', Nadir Belhadj has been pretty 'outspoken' about his Pompey future.
Over the summer he was 'quoted' as saying that he wanted to join Harry Redknapp at Spurs, and now - talking to Le Buteur - the Algerian is talking about moving on in January as his frustrations at his lack of football grow: 'a departure during the window? Yes, I really think so. I am confined to the bench and this does not suit me.
'I do not get to go to the World Cup without competition in my legs. So my sporting interests command me to go and look for playing time at another club.
'In the window, I can quit Portsmouth to join a club where they will trust me. I do not know where but I know I want a change.'
Whilst I think the players should do their talking on the pitch, or at least behind closed doors, this does not happen does it. His 'outspoken' thoughts are not really going to do him much good are they?
To be fair I could see why he would want to move on as he does not seem to feature in the plans here, which is perhaps a shame as we do know what he can do - that said I am not sure his heart is in it anymore, as it has not appeared to be with his limited chances this season.
He will need to play to go to the world cup, so leaving seems his best chance of doing this?
To be honest I would not mind seeing him play in a more advanced role on the left, but then do we play him instead of Jamie O'Hara or Kevin-Prince Boateng?
Not really do we...
'If' we do go with a 4-5-1, as we often do, would it not be more effective for us to use Belhadj and Tommy Smith as these wide options?
So, I could still see a place for him but I am not convinced that he will be used so there does seem to be only one outcome, I would HOPE that we sell for a price that is reflective though and not just sell for the sake of selling...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
