Llambias On...The Dubai Trip

Llambias On...The Dubai Trip

Derek Llambias, speaking to the Evening Chronicle, talks about the widely reported and much maligned trip to Dubai by club management:

"We were drinking in a bar, but weren`t supposed to be at a meeting. What happened was we had a meeting with Zabeel Investments in the afternoon, but it wasn`t a realistic deal - it was never going to happen.

They offered us a ridiculous deal and we said 'fine` and then went to the pub.
It was very nice and that was it. We were drinking in a bar and that was it - there was no meeting. We had interested parties, but we left it up to Keith Harris.

We didn`t want to know who they were until somebody came up with a solid offer. There were people sniffing around but we didn`t take much notice. Then it came to a point where the emotions were out of here, Mike calmed down and off we went, back to the tracks where we should be. Now we`re not for sale. We want to get back on track."

I'm sure he will, just after we've sold half of the squad.
