Nikola Zigic has forever split the opinions of Blues fans, but today, my suspicions were confirmed, he is bone idle. In his press conference ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Watford, Lee Clark, when asked why Zigic will not be involved answered “his training session was the most disgusting I have ever seen in terms of effort, he is short changing the hard-working fans”.
For me, Zigic has a long way to repay the Blues fans after this. He earns £55,000 a week, the least he could do is try. With a lot of young players in the squad, what sort of example does this set? I am told that this isn’t the first time he has been warned about his conduct in training. Enough is enough. If I was lazy and didn’t do my job sufficiently, I would be annihilated by my boss, why should a footballer be any different?
Some people are lambasting Lee Clark for revealing such information publicly, why? If Zigic was left out tomorrow, we would all demand answers and moan, moan, moan. Now we have an answer, everyone still moans. And there are conspiracies doing the rounds that Blues are trying to make the player feel uncomfortable to force a loan move. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Surely, if they wanted a club to take a player on such high wages, they would be praising him up to the skies.
Why does there always have to be a conspiracy in everything that happens at Blues? Can we not just accept that Zigic is a bone idle, overpaid and undeserving player?
Sorry Nikola, I am 100% with Lee on this one! Limited ability is acceptable, but lack of effort, especially on your kind of salary, is unforgivable.
