Allardyce confirms Diarra deal is off

lassana-diarra-real-madridSam Allardyce has confirmed the Lassana Diarra deal is off due to FIFA Regulations.

“It’s not going to happen due to administration reasons, which is a real shame,” Sam revealed following our 0-0 draw at Southampton last night.

“FIFA regulations, apparently, so after all the work we’ve done to get a player of his quality with a lot to prove would have been a huge bonus for us.” he added.

Earlier in the evening Diarra tweeted “Thanks to the FIFA again you did a great job you don’t let me play in France, Germany, Italy and England so maybe in Jamaica you will…In fews days I will explain everything the real story with my ex-team with the FIFA everything not the fake version since the beginning of this story I received a lot of support from you guys thanks a lot i really appreciate one love G5″

  1. He probably watched BFSs new revolutionary tactics of putting Cole up front which then took Sakho and Valencia out of the game as a perfect pairing and put pressure on our midfield,but who I am to argue with a genius with so much nous.
    Please someone wake me up I cant believe what comes out of Hippos mouth any more they will understand at Villa it’s obviously a Midlands thing.

  2. I really dont understand why they should be surprised that this deal fell through.When it was first reported in the media a couple of weeks ago they said it would be difficult for us to sign him because of ongoing disputes with his old club.Does no one at the club actually look into these things properly.We have Sam saying he could sign within a couple of days but the media have ben saying from the start it could well be a no go because of these disputes & fifa having involvement in the matter.
