Pennant's Real shocker

Liverpool midfielder Jermaine Pennant has moved to Spain in a shock free transfer. The former Arsenal winger will join La Liga new-boys Real Zaragoza today. Real were promoted from the Spanish second division last season after one season outside the top flight.

Pennant, who spent last season on loan at Portsmouth, said:
"I wanted to come to Spain. I had offers from important teams in Europe but joined Real Zaragoza. I really want to get started and do well in the league."
Why oh why would you go from England to Spain only he knows. But I don't think he was given a chance at Liverpool. Managers like Rafa and Mourinho think you have to have the big names to win leagues, you don't. All you need is a good bunch of players who believe in themselves, great backing, a manager who doesn't get flustered under pressure, a bit of luck and it's quite possible the league trophy is yours at the end of the season.

In any case, I hope he does well in Spain. Good luck to him.
