Penny Returns to Peru

Penny Returns to Peru

Keeper, Diego Penny who made just four appearances for the Clarets over the two years since Owen Coyle signed him in June 2008 has had his contract terminated by mutual consent. The 26 year old's contract still had a just under a year to go but Brian Laws was brutally honest recently stating that the Peruvian international keeper was not where they wanted him to be at this stage. With the arrival recently also of Lee Grant his departure comes as no surprise.

Diego has returned to his homeland of Peru and will now try and resurrect his career over there.

We wish him well. Sorry it didn't work out for you here,Diego. All the best mate

No surprise. Bit of an embarassment for everyone I thought keeping him on the books and never really giving him the chance to play much. Good luck,Diego

Apparantly he is also close to signing a one year deal with a Peruvian club but still wishes to return to Europe sometime

Had a chat with him before the wigan game last season, I told him I thought he he may make the team soon (as the Beast had made one or two blunders) He said no chance, but was soon on the field as Jensen managed to injure himself. But never given a chance.

Good Luck Diego. I feel sorry for him also to be honest. It was made oh so obvious that he wasnt deemed good enough when a half fit Beast played at Spurs last season after the Barnsley incident. Further evidence when Weaver came in during January. I just wonder what criteria was used to bring buy him in the first place?

There is only one man to blame to be honest-Owen Coyle

He needs to find a club where he is number one and build up his confidence, I personaly hope Grant gets the oppertunity to become number one, Because either, the Beast is a bully & intimidates other keepers that come, Interesting one or he ups his game

Beast definatley ups his gaem Albamaleaf. Watched it for years, new kepper comes he ups his game and looks brilliant, establishes himself as number 1 again, then he tails off. Its his pattern. However on this occasion I'd like to see Grant, I think he is just as good a shot stopper and his dsitrubution is alot better. Beast distrubution is shocking at times, he just needs to look up and throw on occasion and not the usual long punt!! Hopefully Penny can re-build his career, I think you have to say two coaches didn't think he was good enough. He also says he was really happy at Burnely, what as third choice? Do you really want a player that is happy to sit there and take the £15,000 a week? Oh yes he was one of our top earners! Not enough drive.

he wasnt on 15k skutter surely! Bit harsh to put all of the blame on Coyle TMP - I appreciate the final decision may have been his but I would their was some form of scouting etc involved from other scouts/coaches.

I would very surprised if he was on £15,000 a week? if that was the case it would explain why nobody come in for him on loan, I think you would have to blame Coyle at the end of the day it is down to the manager who he brings in or you would like to think so and the buck should stop with him..
