An article from Pompey Malta, the suggestion is that the likes of Kanu, Benjani and Mokoena deserve a fitting send off next weekend – read on for more.
With just 1 game to the end of the season, and Pompey already relegated to the dire of League 1, Michael Appleton should give the opportunity of a deserved farewell to 3 Pompey heroes in Kanu, Benjani and Mokoena.
It seems to me, and probably to many Pompey fans that there will be no ‘high-profile’ players at Fratton Park next season, and I am 100% convinced all 3 mentioned will not be part of Appy’s League 1 resurrecting plan.
Appy has made it clear that he needs to re-build, and I cannot see any of these staying on at Fratton Park: “A lot needs to be changed. We can’t cope with the wage structure we have at the minute and something has to give, so players have to leave.”
In a way, I am pleased we were relegated with a game in hand rather then going down on the last day, as I truly believe Kanu, Benjani and Mokoena should be given the farewell they deserve. If we had to play for our lives against Forest, they would not have been involved at all. But it is a different situation now and I’d love to see them for the last time in a Pompey shirt.
