Tottenham Hotspur defender Pascal Chimbonda’s agent, doesn’t yet know if Tottenham will offer his client a new contract at the end of the season.
Pascal Chimbonda – good attacking full-back – available?
New Spurs manager Juande Ramos, has said that he will probably not want to keep the full-back once the summer arrives. Pascal can play on either side and would be a good squad player for us. When we’ve seen his play for Spurs he’s looked good.
Roger Boli told Setanta Sports:
“We expect to discuss a contract extension for Pascal when the season ends,” “We will see what the possibilities are with the club. Everything will depend on Spurs’ directors.”
“It’s up to them to decide if they want to keep him or not.” “I’m optimistic in both options: The first one would be Pascal being offered a new deal and the second one would see him being transferred by Spurs.” “I know they want to keep him.”
“Newcastle’s offer was serious, but they are in a bizarre situation right now and I don’t know if Kevin Keegan will stay at the club next season so let’s wait and see.”
Interesting last comment from Boli.
But that’s exactly why we need to start pulling away from the relegation zone, if we are to attract good players to the club in the summer. We’ve shot ourselves in the foot too many times this season, and for a team that aimed at finishing in the top 6 this season, we’ve been hopeless far too many times.
We know our readers are not sold on Pascal, but we think he would be an excellent acquisition in the summer. He seems just the type of player who would fit in well, with Keegan’s attacking style of play.
What do you think?
Let us know – comments welcome.
