Ravanelli tells fans of his Boro bliss
Saturday 14 December 1996
The 16-goal, pounds 7m striker, who is also reported to be interesting Manchester United, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Internazionale, declared his satisfaction with life on Teesside and does not wish to leave.
"I want to tell all Boro fans that, despite moving to a new club and a new country, I could not have hoped to have settled in better in the few months I have been here," he said. "There is no way I want to leave."
Bryan Robson, the Boro manager, said: "I have not had one approach from any club concerning Ravanelli. He is 100 per cent happy. The only problem is misleading articles in the press that upset him."
Hi-tech shenanigans in Spain where an unidentified fan armed with a laser tried to distract the Seville keeper, Monchi Rodrgiuez, during Monday's 3-0 league defeat at Hercules.
Television pictures showed a small red light on the keeper's face at corners and free-kicks. Lasers can cause permanent eye damage and even blindness.
"There was some kind of laser, but it didn't affect me," Monchi said.
