Louis Saha wows to always give one hunder per cent effort to our cause, that’s his priority, not avoiding injuries.

The infamously injury-prone French striker returned from a long absence on Saturday, scoring the only goal in our 1-0 win over Sunderland. Sir Alex Ferguson hailed his impact and claimed we missed him. Saha himself remains determined to finally have a really good season.

‘I know exactly how not to get injured,’ SkySports quotes him.

‘All I have to do is play without full commitment. But I won’t do it, I can’t do it.

‘United players have to play at 100 per cent, so if things like this happen to me, it is just because of the game.

‘Now I have an amazing chance to try and get fitter over the next two weeks because before this, I only played in a couple of training games.’


Fortunately, he’s not been included (sensibly) in France’s squad for the qualifiers against Scotland and Italy – that’s a blessing as he picked up so many injuries playing for Les Bleus.

He will be a big asset if he remains fit. I still trust Saha, he’s the main reason I wasn’t among those who screamed out for another striker. Hopefully he’ll finally prove me right.
