    Do you have any idea about his crazy salary when you write this?!

    With those kind of wages, it will never happen.

    But if only though …

    Sign him for free. It would cover his salary.

      Just for one year!

  4. Vasio says:

    Forget about him. Wasting time and money. Let’s get some ITALIANS! Zaccagni, for instance: tactically discipline and way cheaper!

    1. Kourosh says:

      If we have to go for Italians, Pessina should be the only one for that position.
