Please Stop Winging Elano & Sort It Out

Google language translator


Manchester City midfielder Elano told Sky Sports News earlier today that he wants to please manager Mark Hughes but is sad at his lack of first-team action.

The 27-year-old Brazilian moved to Eastlands in August 2007 after the club paid Shakhtar Donetsk a whopping £8million, however since the club sacked previous boss Sven-Göran Eriksson the 5 foot 8 inch play-maker has had limited first team opportunities.

Talking about the gaffer, Elano said...

"When I am playing I know what he wants and when I come off there is nothing from him."

"It's his right, he is the manager. I respect him and I will keep working, arriving on time and doing my duties at the club, but my sadness is not playing"

"I can't hide that from the fans or the president - who wants to make this a big club. I think I have the capabilities to be playing."


Respect

"I want to help by playing. I respect everyone here. I have many friends here and get on with the team 100 per cent."

"I respect the manager a lot but I cannot be happy if I don't play."


Vital Man City says...

"Everyone needs a cuddle when they feel rejected but no one has the divine right to get an automatic first team place."

"If you are feeling sad then work harder in training and show Sparky what you are capable of. Failing that you could always ask me and I'll glady give you a hug!"

There is nothing wrong with a player wanting to play rather than some who sit back and collect their wages every week.

Agreed alphieblues but to admit he feels sad because he's not being picked week in, week out is something i'm not used to hearing. Like I said in my article, he needs to knuckle down and prove Sparky wrong.

Perhaps he should join Dunne & Richards on the same knuckling down program.

I've noted on the VCZ quotes that his press visits are becoming almost weekly.

Agree with you Tudor. We want to hear "I'm not playing this week so I'm going to put in extra hours next week, and when I do get a chance, I'll show everyone what I'm made of!" Elano - shut up or leave!

100% spot on oliverblue. He should either shut up or sod off.
