Hulk - a bad player?

Post by mongrel hawk on Fri Jul 13, 2012 3:26 pm

Everybody in Brazil and the Brazilian press are complaining a lot about Mano Menezes calling Hulk for the Olympics.

Hulk is considered a hoofer in Brazil, a strong player of no talent, both by popular opinion and by the press.

I never watched him playing for Porto, so I have no firm opinion yet. What do you Europeans think about him?

I've seen him play against Arsenal a few times in the CL. He's ok, but for the fee being mooted for him, i'm not sure he's worth the hassle. Also, doesn't he have a history of bad antics off the field?

I don't know. We don't know much about him here. All I know is he isn't liked by Brazilians.

How much of that is due to the fact that he didn't play in Brazil for a significant length of time? I haven't watched a great deal of him, but I know he was suspended for attacking a referee or something like that.

I dunno either. But I do know he provided us with one of the greatest moments of amateur at-the-match mobile video footage:
