Sir Alex Ferguson hails Tottenham Hotspur’s ‘tremendous’ Louis Saha
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson admits Louis Saha is a "tremendous" talent ahead of Tottenham clash
Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed Tottenham Hotspur striker Louis Saha as a “tremendous talent” ahead of Manchester United’s trip to White Hart Lane on Sunday.
The 33-year-old joined Manchester United from Fulham for a reported £12.8m in 2004, but the French forward struggled with injuries during a four-year spell at Old Trafford, and he was eventually sold to Everton.
After an impressive start to his career at Goodison Park, Saha hit a barren spell and David Moyes allowed the former Newcastle United man to move to Spurs on a free transfer in January.
“I don’t know the circumstances behind Louis Saha’s transfer but Everton were happy to let him go,” Ferguson told Inside United.
“And then he goes to Spurs and scores two goals against Newcastle United. That’s typical of Louis. He’s got tremendous talent, he just doesn’t play enough.
“He is a handful, no doubt about that. He’s got two great feet, he’s quick, he’s got a good spring in the air. There’s no doubt he is a handful.”
Ferguson is expecting a difficult trip to Spurs, who currently lie in third place, eight points behind United.
“They’ve got a fantastic squad, and a goal threat throughout the team. Gareth Bale contributes, Rafael van der Vaart, Jermain Defoe, Emmanuel Adebayor. They’ve got goals in their team.”
