You can laugh at the title above, even I was little bit raising my eyebrows when I saw the article from Times Online about Kevin Keegan thoughts for United’s Australian striker Mark Viduka.

But after reading the whole sentences, I understand the point of Keegan said Mark can be our Fernando Torres.

“If he’d been fit and available, Mark is the kind of player you want on your teamsheet every week,” Keegan said. “You always want your best players available, but forwards who can score you goals and win you matches and who have experience, you need them especially. If we can have a fit Mark Viduka for the last nine games, that’ll be a huge bonus for us.”

Have been lacked in fitness issues since joining Newcastle last summer, Mark Viduka only appearing once as substitute for Keegan this year. Keegan said more, quoted from the Times:

“He’s got this fantastic ability to score goals in tight situations and to score goals at important times. That’s what wins you football matches. You saw Fernando Torres the other night score a goal [for Liverpool] when a lot of players would have taken another touch, and Mark comes into that category, too. He doesn’t need a lot of space, he can do the unexpected.”
