City Chairman Cool On Ronaldinho Bid

City Chairman Cool On Ronaldinho Bid

Manchester City executive chairman Garry Cook remains cool on the long running Ronaldinho saga.

The club has made it perfectly clear that they are willing bend over backwards and do whatever it takes to bring Barcelona's Ronaldinho to Eastlands however, there must become a time when City are forced into drawing a line and say 'enough is enough'.

Garry Cook said...

'We are in the hunt and have been talking to them on a regular basis. We will continue to do so until we feel it is not right to bring the player to the club or he decides not to come. Although there is long way to go, we are optimistic.'

'There are some complexities (to a possible deal) that you don't normally associate with signing a player.'


Mark Hughes added...

'Perhaps in the last 18 months he has not reached his potential. We are offering him an opportunity that will stimulate him and enable him to get back to the level he was at before.'

'I think it could be an interesting idea for him. Maybe what we are doing here would attract him more than going to an established Champions League club.'


Vital Man City says...

'Only a few days ago Goofy was seen playing in a charity game in his native country. His stomach was hanging over his shorts and his cheeks looked as though he had just finished his third helping of a Big Mac meal.'

'His weekly salary has been mooted anywhere between £130,000 and £200,000. If this is true then those at City who are pulling out all the stops in an attempt to bring 'Five Bellies' to Eastlands should take a long hard look at themselves and say, is it worth it. Failing that, they could always join Goofy at McDonalds for a slap-up dinner!

Typical short-sighted view as ever. Ronaldinho is second only to David Beckham and would make Manchester City one of the most recognizable clubs in the world in an instant. The club would benefit for years to come. It is so much more than what he could do on the pitch. If Manchester City are still negotiating then there is a chance. If he definitely did not want to come then he would have said so and City would have pulled out by now. If he does sign it won't take long for mark Hughes to get him fit again anyway.

Well said swordfish...Even Beckham wasn't guaranteed a place in the Madrid line-up but it didn't stop them making millions out of him. The same would happen with Goofy so I say bring him on and let him warm the bench for a couple of seasons.!!!

I don't want my hard earned season ticket money to go towards paying the ridiculous wages of a professional 'athlete' who couldn't be arsed to put in any effort for Barcelona, so what are the chances of him putting in a decent shift away to Hull or West Brom? Spend the money on someone young & hungry like SWP or Bentley!

The only logical place Ronnie can go to resurrect his career will be AC Milan, not a mid-table Premier League team, no disrespect!

ForeverUnited - it all depends on the guy's mentality. If he wants to prove to everyone he is still one of the world's best, and that he still has an appetite for the game, the challenge of trying to push a mid-table team into an established European contender may well appeal. He'd certainly make more of an impact in Manchester than Milan. If he wants to coast through the rest of his career at one of Europe's major clubs, then he'll go to AC. Just my opinion! Dont want him at City unless he has a burning desire to improve both himself and us. I'd rather see the shirt go to one of our many outstanding youth team players!
