Why would a player linked with Manchester United go to Russia?
So, from Man U:
timesonline.co.uk (last paragraph)
“Portugal international midfielders Maniche and Costinha will leave Porto for Dinamo Moscow on 1 July in a massive coup for the Russian club.”
I’m stunned. Why would a player of such quality, both in fact, accept such a move?
I don’t have anything against Russia mind you, but it’s not exactly where the top players in the world go these days. So why would Maniche, who scored the best goal of Euro 2004, pack his bags for Moscow?
