Guivarc'h takes aim at 'worst striker' poll

(AFP) – 2 days ago

PARIS — Former Newcastle forward Stephane Guivarc'h has lashed out at a poll in a British newspaper which named the 1998 World Cup winner as the worst striker ever to appear in the Premier League.

Guivarc'h, who played under Kenny Dalglish and then Ruud Gullit at Newcastle in 1998, was responding to a survey published in The Daily Mai last week.

He told Friday's edition of French newspaper 10 Sport: "I couldn't care less about this Daily Mail poll. It's really a crap paper, how can they judge that?

"At Newcastle I only started in two games and played in four in total. And I scored once, against Liverpool.

"After two matches Kenny Dalglish, who signed me and who wanted to use me with Alan Shearer, was fired. Ruud Gullit arrived and sidelined me straight away."

Guivarc'h, who retired in 2002 and now coaches a French amateur side in Brittany, dismissed Gullit as "a tourist".

"He used to only turn up on Wednesdays and the day of the match, and spent the rest of the time with his wife back home in the Netherlands.

"... Never has a coach shown me such a lack of respect."

The 39-year-old recalled: "After six months I left to join Rangers, I wanted to link up with (Rangers' then goalkeeper) Lionel Charbonnier. But the day I signed, he got injured.

"In the Scottish Cup final I scored and set up another goal, but my ankle was causing me a lot of problems."

Turning his ire on English football in general, Guivarc'h concluded: "In fact what have the English won since the 1966 World Cup?

"Perhaps they invented football but they would do better to focus on their national team because they haven't really made a lot of progress for quite some time."

Guivarc'h started each of France's seven World Cup games on the way to the 1998 title but failed to score any goals.

He was made a Chevalier (Knight) of the Legion d'honneur in 1998.

In The Daily Mail poll the second worst striker nomination went to West Ham's former Dutch player Mark Boogers with Aston Villa "flop" Bosko Balaban in third.

Others to make the rogues' list were 'the footballer that never was', Southampton's Ali Dia, Fulham's Steve Marlet, Ade Akinbiyi (Leicester), Tomas Brolin (Leeds), Andriy Shevchenko (Chelsea), Jason Lee (Nottingham Forest) and Sergei Rebrov (Tottenham).

"Kada krene dobro, svi sanjaju o novoj tituli, već posle dva-tri vezana poraza organizuju se demonstracije i traži se nečija glava i između nema ničeg: ako ste navijač Njukasla, ili ste na sedmom nebu, zagledani u svetlu budućnost, ili se valjate po podu u bolovima većim od kamena u bubregu, proklinjući dan kada ste rođeni na severu ili zavoleli crno-bele boje"
