Just to set the record straight about Nikola Zigic.
Reports, the players agent and seemingly a lot of noses are saying that Villa made a last minute attempt to sign Zigic before he signed for Birmingham but we couldn't get our man because .... (wait for it) .... Martin O'Neill was on holiday???? (See: www.astonvilla.vitalfootball.co.uk/article)
How do we know this is rubbish?
Well look at Martin O'Neill's comments on Zigic from 22nd July 2008 after we had been linked with Zigic for about 12 months.
'There's not a grain of truth in the story that we've put in an offer for the player and I don't know where it is coming from,' O'Neill told the club's official website. 'I don't even know who the player's agent is. 'I wouldn't normally comment but there have been so many stories claiming this as fact and people have been quoted. 'They're completely wide of the mark. So I felt I had to put the record straight.'
Does this sound like a player MON wanted to sign?
Even if it were a true story from his agent then it sums up what MON thinks of the player; he wouldn't come home from his Holiday a few days earlier to sign a player he apparently was desperate to sign.
(Apparently he was begging Zigic too!)
So clearly any claims that we were after Zigic is false, he is an average player joining an average club. If anything Birmingham actually did us Villa fans a favour because we now know there will be no more annoying 'Zigic to sign for Aston Villa' articles just like there has been for the past 2 years.
