Sunderland blast "disrespectful" Reds

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has launched an angry broadside at Liverpool over their pursuit of Kenwyne Jones.

Bruce insisted there has been no contact between the two clubs despite repeated speculation on Merseyside that the Trinidad and Tobago international is to join the Reds on loan before making a permanent switch during the summer.

He said: "I find it hugely disrespectful, the antics of Liverpool. I have huge respect for Liverpool and the way they have done their business and they way they have conducted themselves.

"But I have to say, this constant badgering of Kenwyne Jones when we as a club haven't heard anything, and then I keep reading this nonsense that I'm going to allow him to go on loan because it's a tax advantage for both clubs is the biggest load of rubbish I have read for weeks."

He added: "As if I'm got to let our big, big player, one of our big, big assets, go on loan - I find it hugely disrespectful and I can't understand where Liverpool are coming from."
