    He didn't but from memory trying to get one was seen as the biggest motivator for leaving us.

    Hard to begrudge him following his dreams.

    Again from memory he always put a shift in for us and was exciting to watch. Wish he'd stayed longer but no complaints.

    I have zero sympathy for him.

    We gave him EVERYTHING. We took him from relative obscurity to a champions League player, starring for one of Europe's biggest clubs, tens of thousands of adoring fans singing his name week in week out.

    Unfortunately for us and especially him it went to his head. To the point were he claimed he was going to be playing for Barca.

    He was always going to leave us but his refusal to sign a new contract and at least get us a decent fee always irked me.

    He ended up at * Norwich... Norwich, signing for relegation fodder with a system in no way designed to accommodate him.

    He was told, he was warned. He didn't listen.

    Sorry Gary. Enjoy India.

    Probably but perhaps that wasn't on the cards. Might have been his only option.

    What a fall from grace.

    I thought he was a great striker for us.
