Llambias On...Given & N'Zogbia

Llambias On...Given & N'Zogbia

Derek Llambias, speaking to the Evening Chronicle, talks about the transfer window turmoil:

"Since I`ve been here Charles was always trying to get out of the club. He seemed to have this delusion that he was going to Arsenal or Man United and he`s ended up at Wigan. What`s all that about? It makes you think what are his motives.

The Shay situation was really difficult for us - he was an icon here, he was like Alan Shearer. We didn`t want to lose that. We never wanted to lose him. We emphasised that to him. Mike Ashley flew into to see Shay and tried to make him realise how valuable he was to us.

We want to continue working with Shay on his Macmillan charities. We don`t want to lose this relationship with Shay and I`ve made that very clear with the charity. It`s unfortunate, but what can you do when a player wants to leave? It`s no good having a player sitting in the stands, what can you do? It doesn`t do anybody any good."
