Choose a team full of exciting young players.
Choose a club with a tradition of success.
Choose a team who has played in the Champions League every season for the last decade.
Choose a manager who defended me when others doubted my commitment.
Choose a team with players like Andrey, Theo, Samir, Robin, Tomas and Carlos, who can create chances at will.
Choose the only manager I have never publicly fallen out with.
Choose a team who are renowned for the exciting way they play football.
Choose a team who will challenge for the title next season.
Choose a team for whom not winning a trophy is a complete disaster, not the norm.
No, I choose something else...
I chose to play at a club who don’t realise that I don’t understand offside.
I chose a side who don’t have Nasty Nic Bendtner in the dressing room.
I chose not to play European football next season.
I chose to join a squad of expensive faces, not a team.
I chose not to have to play in the limelight next season.
I chose to avoid top level pressure.
I chose £155,000 a week.
I chose Manche$ter City.
No, my friend Eboue, come and join me....
