Why United have got Roy Keane on the cheap... Why United have got Roy Keane on the cheap... By David Bond If the prophets of doom are to be believed, Roy Keane's new £52,000-a-week contract at Manchester United is a 'shuddering disaster for football'. Nearly double the wages Newcastle pay to England's second-highest earner, Alan Shearer, the deal has been portrayed as a milestone for the game in this country. Whatever resistance there was to the forces of inflation has been blown away and players up and down the country are at this very moment knocking on their managers' doors demanding more cash. But, in truth, United could have paid a lot more to keep the Irish international who was described by team-mate Gary Neville last week as 'the most influential player in Europe'. Well, he would say that wouldn't he? But if Keane really is one of the continent's best players then there is no reason why he should not demand parity with Juventus star Allesandro Del Piero, who pockets £70,000 a week, after tax, or Internazionale striker Christian Vieri, who is left with £55,000 a week. Even Steve McManaman, a player who is unable to hold down a regular place in the England team, takes home £65,000 a week. In the three years since Keane's previous deal in November 1996, which at the time also appeared beneath headlines such as 'Keane Secures Deal of the Century', players wages in the Premiership have increased by about 150 per cent. The 28-year-old midfielder's increase is just under 75 per cent, his gross earnings jumping from £30,000 to £52,000. During that time Manchester United's turnover has climbed from £53.3 million to £88m - not quite the same rate of increase but nevertheless a healthy improvement. Much of that can be accounted for by growth in television revenue and, with the Premiership due to sign a new TV deal in 2001, United chief executive Martin Edwards knows he could have afforded to pay Keane even more money than he has. Replacing him would have cost at least double the amount it has cost to retain his services. Assuming he is worth about £20m on the transfer market, that figure would have had to have been written off over the next four years alongside an equal if not higher salary. Edwards, in fact, speculated that it would cost about £50m in transfer fees and wages to replace Keane with Brazilian star Rivaldo. Had Keane's representatives examined the statistics more closely they might have decided to be even more resilient. Richard Baldwin, a partner at accountants Deloitte and Touche, who produce the official report on the economic state of the game, said: 'It was actually a very good deal for United. If they had lost him they could have ended up paying about £80,000 a week rather than the £52,000 they are going to pay. It's a very good bit of business.' For United, maybe. But what of the smaller clubs whose marketing and merchandising power (not to mention on-field success) cannot match that of Old Trafford. 'It won't cause chaos,' said Baldwin. 'Most clubs, in the Premiership at least, are getting wise to the fact that they can't just pay players what they want. They have been behaving in a much more realistic way for a long time now. 'United and Keane are unique and you only have to look at how long it took both sides to reach agreement to see how cautious United were being. If you look at the figures for wages over the past few years you can see that Keane's deal is below the rate of inflation.' At the moment, United's wage bill is about £28m a year. That is certain to increase in the next few years with David Beckham and Ryan Giggs both up for renegotiation. That explains United's caution at a time when Italian clubs such as Lazio are paying out £60m a year on players' salaries. The idea that Keane's contract is out of step with developments of the past five years is seriously flawed. Indeed, other wealthy Premiership sides such as Tottenham and Arsenal continue to resist the temptation to break rigid pay structures. Spurs have a self-imposed salary cap of £1.2m a year - the deal David Ginola is on and the same one being considered by England international stars Darren Anderton and Sol Campbell - while Arsenal are still quibbling over Nwankwo Kanu's reported demands of £40,000 a week. It is in Tottenham's interests for other clubs to agree with director of football David Pleat that the Keane deal will cause problems. The Spurs board have already decided to set a limit and, if other clubs do the same, they will again be able to compete for the best players, something they do not seem able to do at the moment. The result of this lack of success in the transfer market has been a lack of success on the field. Further down the economic scale the pressure on wages remains a concern, particularly for clubs such as West Ham who command an annual turnover of only £15m. Their financial director Nick Igoe said: 'There has been generally inflationary pressure in the market for a number of years now and this is just another example of it. 'It's something we are always aware of but it's a fact of life. Even without Keane's new deal there's enough pressure on wages, and players' representatives will continue to take every opportunity to demand the best deal. 'But it's all about striking a balance between paying what you can afford and trying to retain the players who are important to the club.' Striking that balance may well allow West Ham to continue to function as a solid business. But balance sheets mean nothing to fans. For all their realistic prudence, winning the Treble is not an option at Upton Park. The question football will have to wrestle with as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer is how the financial inequality is mirrored by a failure to compete on the pitch. A salary cap is one potential solution to that problem and to the financial risks clubs run in an effort to keep up. In American football socialist principles are applied to try to close the wealth gap. As well as sharing an equal amount of pooled revenue, franchises in the NFL are required to stick to a maximum level when paying players and all salaries are made public. Then there is the draft system which sees the best college players go to the team's with the previous season's worst record. But PFA spokesman Brendon Batson says even that does not work properly. 'From what I have heard in America there are always ways around a cap,' he said. 'The NFL system has a built-in topping-up process where leading players have their pay packets supplemented by huge bonuses. We are not in favour of a cap and it wouldn't work because football is a free market. Many clubs are listed on the stock market and simply couldn't operate in that way.'

VIKING NEVLAND LEAVES FERGIE FOR HOME Erik Nevland has left Manchester United and rejoined his former club Viking Stavanger for a fee of around £250,000. The 22-year-old spent two years at Old Trafford but only started one league game. His only goal in United colours came in last season's Worthington Cup against Bury. Nevland burst onto the scene in Norway when he scored five goals in is first 14 games for Viking Stavanger. With Norway's under-21 coach Bjorn Hansen urging him to play first-team football to enhance his international prospects, Nevland joined Gothenburg on loan in January. Last month, Nevland admited he was likely to leave United: "It's not exactly going well. I can't even remember when I last played 90 minutes. I am farther from a place in the first 11 now than I was a few months ago. "I don't regret coming here at all. Who wouldn't have accepted such an offer? At least I have played six games for Manchester United. There are not many Norwegians who have done that. I doubt that I will sign a new contract. My chances are getting slimmer and slimmer." Viking Stavanger director Bjarne Bernsten said: "Erik has grown up here, and knows the club and he is good enough."

Millennium memory - Solskjaer makes United's Treble Dream come true by David Hytner It was labelled the impossible dream: To reign supreme at both domestic and European levels. Manchester United had twice ruled the roost on their own shores during the Nineties, but could they add the coveted European Cup to the Premiership title and FA Cup? Could they handle pressure of a most excruciating intensity along with the immense physical demands of a congested playing schedule? Alex Ferguson's class of '99 gave their answer on a balmy night in Barcelona, a night forever to be engraved upon the hearts of their followers. Another domestic Double secured, courtesy of a final-day League win over Tottenham and a Cup final drubbing of Newcastle, United went to the Nou Camp with a sense of impending destiny. Their opponents in the European Cup final were Bayern Munich. Confidence within the camp was high despite the fact that skipper Roy Keane and Paul Scholes would miss the game through suspension. Both men had picked up second yellow cards in Turin during United's epic semi-final victory over Juventus. Trailing 2-0, the Reds had staged an improbable fightback to take them within touching distance of their Holy Grail. United had made a habit of conjuring victory in the dying moments of vital games. They had struck twice in the final two minutes of an FA Cup tie with Liverpool, while in the semi-final replay against Arsenal, a spellbinding individual goal from Ryan Giggs deep into extra-time took United to Wembley. United, it seemed, couldn't win like a normal team. But a final chapter was still to be written in their historic season. The showdown with Bayern was far from a classic. The Germans took an early lead and then sat back, frustrating United's desire to attack at pace. The game appeared up as three minutes of injury-time were signalled. Bayern's fans had started to celebrate, their club colours had even been attached to the trophy. Then destiny intervened. David Beckham swung over a 90th-minute corner, goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel on an all-or-nothing raid upfield threw himself at the ball, it broke off Dwight Yorke to Giggs who lashed a shot goalwards. The ball travelled low to Teddy Sheringham, who turned it home. But there was more. Ninety seconds later, another Beckham corner was nodded on by Sheringham to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who thrust out a leg, and almost in slow motion, the ball careered into the top corner. Cue delirium. On what would have been Sir Matt Busby's 90th birthday, United had capped a 33-match unbeaten run with the most memorable European Cup final victory of them all. http://mufc.dk

Teamtalk - Alex in Alex link «« Silvestre's moan «« Alex in Alex link «« Today's tabloid press has linked Manchester United with a move for Brazilian midfielder Alexsandro de Souza. The 22 year-old Palmeiras star is set to move to Europe to further his career and Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently interested in the player. The report concedes that United have not yet made a bid for the player, so we have to treat the link as speculative at the moment. De Souza averages a goal every two games in his country. --------------------------------------------------------------- Silvestre's moan «« Mickael Silvestre has complained that the English game is less polished, planned and developed than in France and Italy. The French defender has been comparing the British game to that played on the continent and his words don't make pretty reading for the English patriot. The £3.25m fullback moaned: "Strength still takes precedence over technique in English football despite the arrival of foreign players and coaches. The game in England is less polished, well-planned and developed than in France or Italy. Over here, players are required to beat their opponents for speed and to play physical stuff in order to wear them down. It is at times a frustrating type of game and it is always demanding." Never mind, I'm sure we'll survive somehow.

David Beckham has told of his disappointment - FA CUP David Beckham has told of his disappointment not to be involved in this year’s FA Cup. While the epicentre of this year’s competition hits 32 grounds around the country this weekend, Manchester United will be sitting out of the action having declined to defend their trophy, and Beckham says that like any young player, he wishes he was playing. “Of course I’m disappointed not to be involved in the FA Cup. Every young player wants to be involved. "It’s also disappointing for the fans around the country and around the world. But we’ll be back in it next year.” Beckham was more upbeat about the United’s success in retaining the services of club captain Roy Keane however. “It’s great that the club have kept him, you always need players like that. “You want to stay at a club when it tries to keep players and buy players and is always trying to strengthen things.” So is he hoping to be next in line for a pay rise? “The chairman has said that we are not allowed to come knocking but you never know.” Beckham also gave an insight into the balancing act he performs between his family, footballing and celebrity lives. “It’s hard to balance it but I’m very professional,” says Beckham. “When I can see my family I do which luckily at the moment is quite a lot. I see Victoria every night. People say that I travel a lot but I don’t travel a long way two days before game and it doesn’t affect my game. It would affect my game more if I didn’t see them.” His form this season, epitomised by his fine performance against Valencia in midweek, suggests he right. “I think I have got stronger since last year. A lot of people have said a lot of things but to come out and win the treble helped me a lot.”

European Cup blow «« Reds officials have been dealt a blow by the news that Milan's San Siro Stadium will host the 2001 European Cup Final instead of Old Trafford. United were hoping to celebrate the increased capacity of the ground by staging the UEFA showpiece event but missed out over the weekend. UEFA have now announced their venues for the next three finals, The Stade de France near Paris this season, Milan in 2001 and Glasgow's Hampden Park the year after that. Some sources claim the current state of the Old Trafford pitch may have been a factor in UEFA's decision to award the prestigious match elsewhere. Undeterred, United are hoping to host England's home clash with Germany in September 2000 but face stiff competition from rival club grounds. Newcastle's St. James' Park and Sunderland's Stadium of Light are also in the running to stage the nation's biggest home World Cup qualifier while Wembley is being rebuilt.

Management trick that enables him to keep four top class strikers happy... SIR Alex Ferguson is the envy of his rival bosses for the management trick that enables him to keep four top class strikers happy. While other top sides have superstars sulking on the sidelines, victims of dubious "rotation'' systems, Fergie has managed a juggling act of Smart Brothers dimensions. But the boss puts the success of his man-management down to the first-class attitudes of the men involved - Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "I've got four strikers who are as good as anyone in this country and they're simply a pleasure to work with,'' he says. "Whatever the permutations I know I can play any two of the four and one will deliver the goods. It's a wonderful position to be in to have four players like that.'' The Reds are less than a week into a gentle programme of three games in 28 days. It's a December in contrast to the normal muscle-wearying month the treble winners have endured in the past. "It's one of the easiest Decembers we've had in over a decade at this club,'' says Sir Alex Ferguson. ``But we know it'll be hectic next year.''
