Yoan Gouffran: Versatility makes him a useful attacking option

Yoan Gouffran: Versatility makes him a useful attacking option

The Frenchman was brought to St James' Park as a striker, having caught the eye in Ligue 1 with Bordeaux.

He has played down the middle at times this season, in a support role, but has also been moved out wide when required.

Gouffran says he is just delighted to be involved on a regular basis, with versatility a useful asset in a squad brimming with attacking talent.

A man who has netted three goals and provided two assists this season, he said in the Evening Chronicle: "We have a lot of quality options here. We have Loic Remy as well as Shola Ameobi and Papiss Cisse in the squad.

"I don't mind who I play with. We have a lot of competition for places and that is the most important thing. We must keep working hard."

Gouffran added: "I am the type of player who wants to do a job for the team. That is the most important thing for me.

"I can play in different positions in attack or, if needed, I can play as a number nine.

"It is up to the manager to decide. I will play in whatever role he asks me."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
