Sir Bobby in the dark about Kluivert

Last updated : 22 October 2003 By Martyn Elliott

Despite all the press stories of the past few days and the claims of Barcelona president Joan Laporta that Freddy Shepherd had made an enquiry about the Dutchman, Sir Bobby insists that he doesn’t know anything about it.

"I didn't know we were after him, to be honest," he told a press conference after the 3-2 win at Fulham.

"I don't think anybody from Newcastle football club has spoken to him."

Kluivert - a good signing or an expensive liability? Have your say.
