Lawrence unhappy with fresh Earnshaw speculation

Last updated : 09 January 2003 By Michael Morris

"I cannot believe there are stories linking Earnie with a move to Manchester United. It's just total and utter nonsense. The speculation is getting ridiculous. Rumours and gossip are fair enough, but for sheer unadulterated gossip, I've never known anything like it.

"I could understand it if there was genuine interest from clubs, but it's a different matter when people make things up on websites and so much newspaper space is given over to it."

"How many times do I have to keep repeating myself on this? There's simply no way they're leaving Cardiff and that's it."

Lennie was taking to the Western Mail.
