Louis Saha

Louis Laurent Saha (born 8 August 1978 in Paris) is a French international footballer of Guadaloupian descent who plays for the English club, Manchester United.

He made his English football debut while on loan at Newcastle United on January 9, 1999, but made the greatest impact of his career when, during 2000, he was transferred to Fulham from F.C. Metz for £2.1million. During a spell of nearly four years at the club, he scored 63 goals in total.

 

In January 2004 he moved to Manchester United for £12.82million, and was handed the number 9 shirt which had been vacant since the departure of Andy Cole two years earlier. Saha scored from a free-kick on his United debut in a 3-2 win over Southampton F.C. on 30 January 2004. In February 2004, Saha capped another debut appearance with a goal, on this occasion for the French national team, in a 2-0 victory against Belgium. Saha ended the season with 7 goals from 13 appearances for United and he looked to have developed a promising partnership with Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

However, the arrival of Alan Smith (from Leeds United for £6million) and then Wayne Rooney (from Everton for £30million) pushed Saha down the pecking order and he was linked with a move away from the club less than a year after arriving. His 2004-05 season was badly hit by a succession of injuries and he managed only two goals. 2005-06 also began with injury setbacks, but Saha has silenced his critics with a series of strong performances since his return to first-team action in November 2005. He now looks likely to replace Van Nistelrooy as United's main striker after the Dutchman has left the club. A member of the French national team and now fairly well established in the squad, Saha was a part of the squad at the 2004 European Football Championship. He is a friend of national team-mate Thierry Henry.

He was picked in the 2006 World Cup Squad squad for France as a forward, along with Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet as well as Djibril Cisse, Sylvain Wiltord and Franck Ribéry. He was unable to play in the final due to receiving his second yellow card of the knockout stages in the semi-final against Portugal.

2006 finally saw him pick up his first medal in the Carling Cup 4-0 win over Wigan. Saha managed to score one of the goals and could be the first of many trophies with the Red Devils.

Vote for the best football player on the planet

stevie gerrard is the best because he can do everything whereas other good players specialise in a few things. Also he works hard and is loyal to club and country.

C.ronaldo is d best footballer

mi jugador es iniesta de espana

I think c ronaldo is the best

ronaldinho he's the master

Christino Ronaldo is the best player of the world. In 47 matches he scored 48 goals in only one year compared to messi who only scored 106 in 159 matches in 6 years. The ballon d'or earned.
