Al-Nassr made Melbourne a £2 million offer. “When I was looking to leave Australia that offer came in,” he said. “I was 25, I was thinking I’m getting older, to look at it as a good financial move or should I wait and hold out if something comes up at the end of the season. It’s a good job I didn’t do it as look where I am now.
Where my club deserves to be criticised I'll do it. I've criticised, players, managers, transfers,.ticket prices, decisions made by the club.
I've criticised our involvement with the other top clubs trying to redistribute TV income, I've criticised the amount of money champions league teams receive despite my.club being one of the biggest beneficiaries.
But I'm not going to criticise my club when I don't believe they've done nothing wrong. No matter how many people try to paint me as someone that does nothing but defend the club.
