An article from Pompeytim. Owners, well former owners, are heavily criticised for what they are after. Its time for players, the likes of Aaron Mokoena to be criticised too.
He sees an opportunity to get some money out of a vulnerable football club. He is already owed a good chunk of money by the club, but sees an opportunity to get even more. He is negotiating with the administrator to get the very best deal to extract every last penny he can from Pompey FC.
Balram Chainrai? No, not this time. This time I’m talking about Aaron Mokoena.
Mr Chainrai is vilified by many for his perceived stripping of Pompey FC for everything he can get. Songs are sung, banners hung. However, there are leeches at the club that go largely under the radar – some of the players.
Mokoena is the latest of 3 players to make what can only be described as crazy demands of the club, at a time when it is least well-placed to deal with them.
Amazingly “The Axe” is demanding to “walk away” to his new club in South Africa in exchange for full payment of the remainder of his contract. Err, hang on. I don’t quite understand Mr Mokoena. You are asking for us to pay you for the upcoming season, and in return we get… Hmmm, we get nothing. Isn’t that wanting your cake whilst at the same time scoffing it down? In terms of compromise he has budged not an inch – he wants 100% of what his contract would see him get in the fullness of time. Well gee, isn’t that a great deal?
I sincerely hope that Birch will not concede ground to this vulture. If he wants to be paid for next season, make him work for it & stay & play. If he doesn’t want that, then let him come a good few strides closer to where we are in terms of the negotiation.
I don’t argue that these guys have contracts, and the club offered them, so we get what we deserve. But this latest demand just shows how little regard for the club, and therefore the fans that ultimately pay their wages, they have.
Chainrai is in it for the money & gets his fair share of abuse as a result. Players, such as Mokoena, Kanu & TBH, seem to get off pretty lightly it would seem.
GET OUT OF OUR CLUB! GET OUT OF OUR CLUB!! Etc…
