It was never Rozey in the garden for departed Toon star
Memories of David Rozehnal in a black and white shirt will never be inspirational but his departure to Lazio yet again sees another player with a good reputation heading for the exit door without fulfilling his potential.
Rozehnal always came across as an honest bloke but after arriving from Paris St Germain to bolster his medals collection with Newcastle he left just a few months into his move from France for pastures new.
Regardless, of a few dodgy performances for Newcastle you don't become a bad player overnight in football although their seems to be a list of those who check in at United before heading down the slippery slope.
Rozehnal, a tall defender who actually liked defending, will be in action for his native Czech Republic at Euro 2008 once again today and playing Serie A football next term.
It shows he has got quality but never produced much of that at Newcastle.
True, the first part of his career at United was under the long ball era of Big Sam and despite experiencing the hullaballo of KK's return, just three games in and he'd seen enough after being fielded in midfield in the 3-0 roasting at Arsenal.
No guarantee of regular first team football meant it was see you later for Rozey.
And in an unpublished Chronicle interview just hours before his move to Lazio, Rozehnal uttered: "Something just isn't quite right here."
And another one had bitten the dust in a black and white shirt.
