So John Carew wants out in January then?

The player has slated Gerard Houllier in the Norwegian press today. ( ://www.vg.no/sport )

Houllier had told him it was time to fight for a new deal at Villa or to put himself into the shop window by playing to the best of his ability. Quotes here: Click Here

Nothing wrong with a word GH said there, we do want the awesome (albeit that isn`t very often) Carew on the field. Not the lazy disinterested ‘where do I pick my wages up from again` type we also see.

Anyway, and wait for the ‘misquoted` story to follow, Carew blasted:

“If he wants me to fight for a contract, he should speak to me directly and not through the media. This is disrespectful to me and to the fans who sing my name week in week out”.

I feel more disrespected by some of his disinterested, tame appearances to be honest, how about you?

Also asked about his previous time with Houllier he said: “Lets just say it wasn’t free of conflicts’- On him and Houllier’s relationship at Lyon.” Adding, if the translation is right, “He was badly prepared upon taking the Villa job”.

Lovely, an argument through the press!

I`ll get Villan of the North to verify this translation!
