They were absolutely nowhere near a title challenge when they brought back something of a club legend in Zlatan, knowing he not only had some qualities on the pitch to offer but also as an incredible example and someone loved in the dressing room.think AC Milan might take him where they pay 30% and he pay 70% to himself. They seem to take in really old players like Zlatan.
Despite that he’s in the Top 15 all time goal scorers for Juve despite being there for a blink of an eye.I considered his career finished when he left Madrid. Twenty or thirty years down the line, the fact he played for Juve and United again will be one of those trivia questions that surprises a lot of people.
He's not done himself any favours for not focusing on football this season. This drop in standard is the as big as the one in his last full season at Juve.Regardless to his me me me attitude and this self indulging interview he’s done
I think he’s been under valued through abit of agism
athletes are healthier and fitter than before and sustaining higher levels of fitness much later these days
He scored 18 Premier League Goals last season and 6 European goals at 37 years of age
Naturally Clubs do look at older players less positively, they have virtually no sell on value
But when your pumping out numbers like what CR7 did last season, he clearly still has a place on the pitch at the highest of levels
Clearly not at United, but I believe he certainly could be the difference between winning and losing trophies as some top level elite club
And I see this very much frustrates him, performance over looked and age clearly not
He doesn’t help himself with his insufferable arrogance.He's not done himself any favours for not focusing on football this season. This drop in standard is the as big as the one in his last full season at Juve.
He will without a doubt. Messi has more or less strongly hinted this is his final season in Europe.It will be uneventful from a football perspective. If he goes to a smaller club, he will grab a fair number of goals, which will rapidly decline as the months go by. He’s more so a brand than a footballer at this point, which will take up most of his time going forward. His main football objective will be to finish with more career and CL goals than Messi.
Yeah possibly. I care not really but In the interest of the thread I think he wants to continue champions league football. This is why I think he did the interview. It was calculated that he would be let go/ sacked and therefore can join a CL team sooner whoever it may be.He's basically retiring IMO. fecking off outside of Europe is my guess
Watching this game as normal everyone knows his moverments and reacts in the crowd to over the top gestures but on the ball he isn’t that good.More bad luck just now missing two easy chances v the worst team in the tournament, the universe must really hate him.
I think Graham Potter would draw a line in the sand if Todd Boehly decides to go for Ronaldo. He is no longer able to play at the top level & Potter can't afford to have a passenger on the team.Hopefully Chelsea. Few early goals, cue talk of him still having 'it', quickly ebbing away, irrelevant within 12 months.
He already has Havertz as a passenger, at least he is young and has potential going for him.I think Graham Potter would draw a line in the sand if Todd Boehly decides to go for Ronaldo. He is no longer able to play at the top level & Potter can't afford to have a passenger on the team.
I have no idea what the massive ego would feel about the MLS.
