Lafferty's Worthy Cause

Lafferty's Worthy Cause

Lawrie Sanchez, the former Northern Ireland manager has tried a number of times to bring Clarets striker, Kyle Lafferty to his new club,Fulham. The latest was a reported £3 million bid on transfer deadline day at the end of August.

Steve Cotterill and the club have held firm though and no longer consider themselves a 'selling club' and have no financial need to sell key players any more under the new climate.

New Northern Ireland boss, Nigel Worthington lends some support to that decision and is quoted as saying the following:

'Personally, as a former club manager, I support the fact Kyle will be staying in the Championship with Burnley.

'The jump to the Premier League at this stage of his career would have come too soon.

'He's still got so much too learn - Kyle will get an excellent education at Burnley, continue his development and get invaluable experience.

'Sometimes players his age take a big step far too early and they suffer because of that.

'He will reap the benefits from playing in the Championship, an extremely difficult league to play in, and undoubtedly improve as a player.'

Kyle Lafferty will be on International duty later today for Northern Ireland as they face Latvia in Liga in the Euro 2008 competition.
