Diego and the disappointment
By Scott Buslawski
Massimo Morrati's office was working over time to find a viable solution, Diego Forlan was the answer they came up with.
The 2010/2011 season ended on a high note for the Nerazzuri. After a mid season coaching change, they battled for a second place finish and a Coppa Italia victory. Then the whirlwind known as the off season began. Leonardo, passionately accepted an exexutive job for Paris Saint-Germain, and Inter is once again in need of a coach. Enter Gian Piero Gasperini. Ok, new coach, new year, same team, chances look great. Enter Anzhi Makhachkala, a Russian club that is located in Dagestan, but trains and is owned out of Moscow. Anzhi made it publicly known they wanted Samuel Eto'o, and were willing to pay for him. The contract that was accepted gave Eto'o around $28.8 million a season, for three seasons with a $42 million transfer fee to Inter Milan. No one in thier right mind would turn this offer down ,not after winning La Liga titles, Serie A title, and multiple Champions League titles. Eto'o, having accomplish everything on the club level, knew there was only one thing left to do, get paid. That amount of money will ensure a future for Eto'o and his children's, children's, children.
Desperate for another striker to go along with Milito, and Pazzani, and fill the void of Eto'o. Massimo Morrati's office was working over time to find a viable solution.... Continued at Diego and the disappointment
His injuries have been frustrating, but i think apart from that, with the age and his experience he's looking more for sacrificing for the team, helping other players and contributing whenever he's needed instead of focusing on personal accomplishment and setting the bar high for himself. And he's enjoying life in Milano, you can tell that based on some photos.
Personally, I just don't agree with the article. His injury was unfortunate, but IMO Forlan >> Zarate for us. He will prove his worth with his work rate, attitude, assists, and hopefully goals.
