'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bog Off

A statement on Barnsley's official website from Mark Robins confirms that top scorer Daniel Bogdanovic will indeed be leaving the club this summer after what has been a great season for him.

The Maltese international scored 14 goals this term for the Reds and was offered a new deal by the club but will not be signing for another stay with Barnsley.

Robins said: 'We will not be playing second fiddle to any club when it comes to signing players.'

The news came less than 24 hours after Daniel told BBC Radio Sheffield that he had spoken to Sheffield United about joining up with them. He moved to deny Barnsley director Don Rowing's claims that he had snubbed an offer, stating that he had not given an answer one way or another.

Now, I'm not in recruitment, but if you're offered a job and you don't respond sharpish to the offer, it's as good as rejecting it in my book, especially when you go public about talking to another company. Bogdanovic told Radio Sheffield that a return to Barnsley might still be on the cards but this statement from Robins rules that out in no uncertain terms.

Robins continued: 'We want players here who want to play for Barnsley and give 100 per cent commitment. We don't want to have a situation where we become a fall back option whilst players look at other clubs.'

Strong words from Mark Robins indeed but just what we need really. Someone who can put their foot down when it comes to negotiations and make sure we are signing the right players.

It's just a shame yet another departure has turned sour and this makes a stark contrast when compared with the ever professional Darren Moore who also left the club this week to sign for Burton Albion FC. There's a man who handled the situation with nothing but dignity, setting an example to professionals everywhere.
