Yesterday, we reported that Stoke were looking to sign Thomas Sorenson (who was a free agent) and Marton Fulop, although it appears that their interest in the latter has waned. Perhaps it was a little far-fetched to imagine that the Potters would add two new goalkeepers to a squad which already included Carlo Nash and Steve Simonsen between the sticks.
However, Sky Sports reports that the Sunderland manager is not a happy bunny after seeing Stoke sign Sorenson instead of continuing their pursuit of Fulop. After Tony Pulis missed out on Scott Carson, it appeared that the Black Cats keeper was the number one goalkeeping target, but Roy Keane has been left spitting feathers.
“They took him for a trial, made him an offer and he asked for a bit more – but they said that’s it,” Keane told The Sun.
“It’s a bloody disgrace to treat a player like that.”
All’s fair in love and football surely Roy? After all, there are always pitfalls associated with asking for more cash, especially when you’re a professional footballer asking for big bucks. At least this will spice up things between the two clubs next season when they clash swords!
