Pierre forgot to add Crespo to that list too.
Is this a joke?
Lampaio cited Alenichev as an example of one of Porto's more exciting players which says it all really.
Deco became a star in that team - he's comfortable with players who become stars under him because that satisfies his ego but he can't handle a superstar.
Sheva is a player who is willing to smash his face to win a header so its not like there is a commitment issue.
I said Alenitchev was not so bad, what is completely different from "one of Porto's more exciting players".
Your argument is that Mourinho does not handle big starts or creative players well, and I pointed out that was not the case
You then said that the only creative player he had was Deco, and again, I pointed out that was not exactly true.
And Sheva has been atrociously poor ever since he arrived in the EPL. And it was not for lack of chances
We go back to the same point. I still don't think that Mourinho asked or wanted Sheva or Ballack
It looks like they where imposed to him. And once your chairman starts doing so, your job is undermined
Very simple no?
