You can go! Robson tells Kanu again


The cold war raging between Super Eagles forward, Nwankwo Kanu, and West Bromwich Albion boss, Bryan Robson, has taken a new dimension as the 29-year ace has been bluntly told by Robson for the umpteenth time that he wants him out before the end of the month and is willing to let him go on loan to any club of his choice.

The cold war raging between Super Eagles forward, Nwankwo Kanu, and West Bromwich Albion boss, Bryan Robson, has taken a new dimension as the 29-year ace has been bluntly told by Robson for the umpteenth time that he wants him out before the end of the month and is willing to let him go on loan to any club of his choice.

The introduction of Ellington increases Robsonís attacking option to six, thus underlining his resolve to finally do away with the Nigerian Olympic Dream Team captain.

Ellington passed a medical on Friday and was introduced as a West Brom player at a colourful press conference Monday night. The 24-year-old had one year left on his Wigan contract.

Ellington netted 67 goals in 146 appearances for the Latics and his partnership with Jason Roberts fired them to second place in the championship last season. Robson has previously said he believed the former Bristol Rovers hitman might help to keep his side in the Premiership once again. ďNathan is a great athlete, very strong and quick and has a good goal-scoring record,Ē eulogised Robson who was heavily criticised last season by Kanu for marginalising him in the Baggies squad. Only last weekend, Robson lamented the shoddy performance of his players, including Kanu in the teamís barren draw with Manchester City in the English Premiership opening match. The former Arsenal striker wasted several scoring opportunities to the chagrin of Robson!
