Aston Villa ‘keeper Thomas Sorensen has lashed out at his gaffer Martin O’Neill, not only for shipping in a replacement when he was injured; but also for cruelly dropping him after the press exaggerated some of the goalie’s statements…
“I am simply not interested any more. Villa have shown that they have no interest whatsoever to invest in me. Even if Martin O’Neill personally offered me a new contract tomorrow I wouldn’t sign it. Martin O’Neill decided to recruit a new goalkeeper when I was injured. He then told me during a meeting that I shouldn’t take my spot for granted. I said some things and the press exaggerated what had been said and that upset him. But I can’t believe that would be a reason to punish me this way.”
And as for where Sorensen will play next season, he’s pretty much open to anything, apart from the J-League that is:
“At this point I am open to all suggestions. If somebody shows me a contract, I will sign it, no matter what the offer is. But at the same time I don’t want to play temporarily for some Japanese club either.”
Will Sorensen be missed, or is it good riddance to a moany git?
