Sven ready to bring Hargreaves to Leicester

This is good news, because the ridicule that Owen Hargreaves has faced over the last couple of days for his YouTube videos has been particularly cruel. Of all the players in the Premier League who deserve to be publicly flogged, Hargreaves really isn’t one of them.

Anyway, Sven Goran Eriksson clearly likes spending time on YouTube, and looks set to reach out to the player to whom he gave a first England cap.

‘I saw his videos and if he wants to come here I will open the door and stand and wait for him in the door! He’s been very unlucky in recent years, but if he’s close to what he was, he is a fantastic football player. I haven’t spoken to him for a while – maybe I should. It’s difficult to know what he wants to do when he’s been away for a long time.’

For those who don’t follow the Championship, Leicester are to be taken very seriously next season – David Nugent, Neil Danns, Kasper Schmeichel, and Sean St Ledger have already been brought in, and Reading captain Matt Mills looks set to follow after City’s £5m bid was accepted yesterday.

In many ways, Sven now finds himself in the authentic version of what he was promised at Notts County. Asian Football Investments, who bought the club last August, certainly have deep enough pockets to attract a player of Owen Hargreaves’ calibre, and it could be the perfect environment for him to rehabilitate his flat-lining career.

Leicester City are 11/2 to win the Championship next season by the way, get on that here.
