David Gill: Louis Saha isn’t a perma-cripple!

Louis Saha is a key component of this Manchester United side and is crucial in coming off the bench and scoring vital goals. But the Frenchman’s career at Old Trafford has been punctuated at various times and stages by injuries. His string of injuries has become so persistent that various press reports in England suggest that the striker would remain on the sidelines for the rest of the season.

But Sky Sports reports that the injury to Louis Saha is not so grave. It quotes Man United’s chief executive David Gill telling Radio Five Live that Saha would return soon.

This is what Gill told Radio Five Live:

He only has a slight knock He is not going to be out for the rest of the season – I know that for a fact.

But Gill’s failure to give any indication to the time when Old Trafford fanatics would be able to watch Saha is action shouldn’t be ignored. Is Saha truly out for the rest of the season? If so, then shouldn’t Man United try and sign another striker this month for cover?
