The Newcastle United club will have to take a strong hold of some of our players’ agents and just throttle them.
Oba Martins – would leave for right offer
Now we are being told that Obafemi Martins would consider leaving Newcastle if he received the right offer, according to his representative, Dapo Kujore.
He’s the one that criticized the medical staff at Newcastle only last week, and now it would appear he’s really trying to stir things up. He has issued a “come-on” to potentially interested clubs by saying that Martins would consider leaving Newcastle United. What is this guy playing at?
Martins has not played since mid-December, and should be having his hernia operation in Germany today, or so we were told last week.
Kujore told Kick Off Nigeria today.
“If an offer came for him, of course he would consider it,”
“But, for now, he is a Newcastle player and he will give his best to the club as long as he is there.”
“Right now, he is focused on getting completely fit and back on the pitch again.”
Joe Kinnear or Dennis Wise need to get on the phone with the players’ representatives – at least N’Zogbia and Martins – and tell them to keep quiet about the Newcastle Players they represent.
Of course they are only in this for themselves, because if their players move they will get a cut of the deal – but it’s ridiculous that there no controls on these agents.
There should be – and the FA should put some limitations on what these people can say to the press.
