Pogrebnyak Is An Arrogant Fool

Pogrebnyak Is An Arrogant Fool

Well, well. Someone's got a high opinion of himself. Zenit St. Petersburg striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has stated he decided that he didn't want to become a Rovers player in January after a fee was agreed between the two clubs.

The reason was that he felt Rovers were beneath him - he probably would of become Roque Santa Cruz's replacement had he accepted.

Now whilst everyone is entitled to their own opinion I'll let you see what he said then I'll ask a few questions?

Pavel speaking to the Russian media said - 'I was puzzled when Zenit general director Maksim Mitrofanov said he was going to talk me into accepting Blackburn's offer in the winter transfer window.

'I could only laugh at it. Yes, I dream of playing in England - but I'm not interested in Blackburn who are struggling against relegation.'

1) Does he realise that the man he would of replaced has done about 10 times more in football than he has?

2) We have two Champions League winners in our squad - Pavel has not won it at all, can someone make him aware of this?

3) No top 4 club is going to show interest in him so will this check his ego and allow him to join the rest of humanity? (Only Bolton and Rovers have registered intent).

4) Does he realise that he has a ridiculous name?

5) With an ego that size will he sign for Spurs in the Summer?

What a complete numpty this guy was. Rovers could of set him up in the EPl a dream just like many other names but he thinks he is above that!

There is nothing wrong with his remarks. He does not prefer to go from a title chasing team (be it at a weaker league) to a relegation fight. what would happpen to his career if blackburn do get relegated. He is playing for a team playing champions leauge football and blackburn are a long way away from achieving that. Anyway what this lad did was a lot better than what Zaki is doing at Wigan. He saw wigan as a stepping stone and saw himself as being much bigger than Wigan athletic and hence showing total disrespect to the club.

Mate either way, whether you believe something like that or not, you dont make it a public statement. If the lad didnt wanna come, a professional would put a proper spin on and say, I'm happy playing for......we shall decide my future in the summer, or something on that lines. Lets hope this guy rots in russia, or maybe newcastle might sign him when they go down to div 1, who knows

Who is this fella anyway...? Sound like we were lucky not to get him! I agree with sas. There is a professional way to do something, and this was not it. A simple 'I'm flattered of re the interest, but I would like to see what else develops' would have sufficed. In any event, I'd prefer to go to Blackburn, instead of Notlob (the ONLY other club who were interested...). The tit...

Sorry Yod from Indida but that is complete carp!!! Note the picture at the top of the article - remember him? he thought he was too big for Spurs and did one - do you like him? No, he an arrogant fool like Pavel. Zaki, Pogrebnyak and Berbatov - none of them have any class. The article highlights this. At least stay professional.
