Sometimes you just have to stop looking back and move on in life. Thomas Sorensen is a case at hand. Yes, he was fairly badly treated at Villa having 'dared' to be slightly outspoken about the manager Martin O'Neill but then, what did he expect? Managers are fragile souls whose ego's and position mean they don't have to take any lip, the decision lies with them who they pick and who they drop. Sorensen muttered a criticism of the boss when Scott Carson was brought in on loan from Liverpool and from that day onwards, his position seemed untenable.
That is now ancient history though surely? The Danish keeper has moved on to Stoke and by all accounts seems in fairly good form. So why talk about it? Well, Sorryson (as some called him, must admit I always thought he was ok, certainly better than Carson his replacement!) has been talking to the Danish media saying that MON wanted to ruin his career.
'It stayed personal for him and had nothing to do with football. This summer it was so crazy and insane that I suddenly understood: my manager will destroy my career. He said to me and to others that he didn’t use me because I just wasn’t good enough but at the same time he didn’t want to let me go to another club. He must really have had a down on me personally, because why would he effectively destroy any chances for me to change clubs?'
Adding: 'I know that Manchester City, Blackburn and Middlesbrough were more or less ready to pick up me, but the course of events were the same. Suddenly I didn’t hear any more from them, nothing happened and I didn’t get an explanation.’’
Hmmm, manager v player and manager wins, hardly a big shock is it? Just ask all those that have come up against Sir Alex Chewalot, there is only ever one winner at a club. Lesson to be learnt maybe Sorensen? Yup, don't bite the hand that feeds via the press... now move along!
