Olly speculation resurfaces

Last updated : 13 October 2002 By The Gas Man

Dacourt, who is away with the France squad for their Euro 2004 qualifiers, has started only four out of the last nine United games and is once again concerned with a lack of first-team opportunities at Leeds.

"I feel fine in Leeds but it is true that if I am not rated, anything is possible," Dacourt said.

"Since I was called up by Jacques Santini last week I have not played at all with Leeds. Usually I play regularly.

"We've changed managers and we've just come out of three beautiful seasons, but now we are suffering a sudden break and we were recently thrashed by Arsenal.

"Regarding my relationship with Venables, I don't want to comment on that. The only thing I can say is that I don't know if I am part of his plans."

"I never said that I wanted to leave the club last season, The club had financial problems and needed money - which I can understand," he added.

"However I am very happy in Leeds, that is why I extended my contract last campaign.

"But every time there is a transfer window I am announced everywhere in Europe."
