Maniche already wanting out of Russia

Maniche, Portugal’s star Euro 2004 performer is apparently unhappy with life in Russia and would like a transfer. Arsenal, are you listening? The solution to your holding midfield problems is right here in the shape of the tenacious, compact defensive midfielder who’s clearly capable with both the pace of the Premiership and Arsenal’s style of play.

The unhappiness is being played down, the club, Dynamo Moscow, has denied any rift, but newspaper quotes by the player clearly dispute this. I must claim vindication, I was right, why did a player who was linked with Manchester United go to Russia?

My conclusion here starts in Portugal, moves onto France and ends in Ghana.

I think Maniche went to Russia as a stepping stone to join Chelsea and re-unite with Mourinho. As soon as Chelsea signed the Ghanaian international Michael Essien from Lyon a door looked shut for Maniche. The transfer window closed 7 days ago. Now we see the public discontent, maybe with Russia, maybe not, but we have that part that starts in Portugal to deal.

Jose Mourinho’s brilliance as a football coach is shadowing his dark side. I think Mourinho, for all his positives, has left Maniche hanging out to dry. It’s for many clubs to profit from.

I dont think Maniche would go. Loaded with players, at Arsenal he'd be playing full time.

Why would Arsene buy a 30 year old holding midfielder, when for the price on offer he could probably get Ballack?

Dinamo Moscow have underperformed this season considering their investment in talent.

Maniche is 28 not 30. He has another 3 or 4 quality years left. I've been following his career since before he was moulded at Porto. He has all the talent, he just needs someone like Jose, Scolari, or Wenger to keep him in line. Very tempermental player...

He would be perfect for the gunners, despite what some might think. Although nobody will buy him because dynamo will slap a crazy tag on him...

Hello everyone.

This is more than a little off the point, so excuse me, but does anyone know if Maniche is seeing someone or is married? I have a crush on him and was wondering if I should bother starting to learn Portugese.
