Come on, let’s settle this Portsmouth-Benjani-Manchester City circus once and for all! One day it is reported that the Zimbabwean striker never wanted to leave Fratton Park and the other day it is reported that he is happy to have left Pompey.
Today it is reported that Benjani is happy to be at Manchester City. The 29-year old says:
I was surprised because it was two days before the deadline. Sometimes you hear that clubs are looking at you two weeks before. Obviously I was happy. As I’ve said before Manchester City are a big club. That is why I drove to London to catch the flight.They didn’t have flights from Southampton so I had to travel from Southampton to London. Then the first flight was delayed, that’s why I was late. I don’t think there was any truth (in the reports) because I signed all the papers before the deadline. I was ready. I was shocked when I was reading all this news, I was always cool, and I was relaxed. It was always through before the deadline, no problem.
Okay, Mr.Cool. Let us stop this fiasco here and now.
