Good Morning. It's Friday 2nd October, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Ornstein - The deal collapsed because Cuisance failed his medical
Respected journalist David Ornstein has insisted that the £20m signing of Michael Cuisance collapsed because the Bayern player failed his medical. The former BBC sports correspondent, now working at the Athletic with Phil Hay has been following the story closely since coming to light earlier this week.
The French youth international arrived in Yorkshire on Wednesday to complete his transfer after saying his goodbyes to his teammates. The medical showed underlying injury problems; so much so that Cuisance flew back to Germany that evening.
Let's go all the way back to 2000 when Leeds signed Dominic Matteo. The former Liverpool star failed his medical but Leeds signed him anyway. Leeds withheld the £4.25m fee due to Liverpool until Matteo was pronounced fit. An Elland Road spokesman was quoted as saying: "He is a proven quality player within the Premiership, which means we're not gambling on whether he can fit into a Premiership team." Matteo became one of our best players of that era.
Was Cristiano Ronaldo cast to one side when he tore his Collateral Ligament or fractured his knee cap? Would Citeh tell Lionel Messi that they have lost interest in him due to past injuries like Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury or Torn Muscle Bundle where the thigh loses its ability to contract?
French Media outlet rubbish Ornstein's comments
French Soccertelevision channel 'Tele Foot TF1' are rubbishing reports that Michael Cuisance failed his medical, and further claim that representatives of Bayern Munich believe the deal can be resurrected. TF1 are reporting that it fell through as a result of several disagreements between Leeds and the Bundesliga giants about some details of the deal. They further insist that there were no problems with the medical. The French outlet insists that the 21-year-old passed his medical examinations. Leeds are yet to officially comment on the matter.
