They expect inter to pay them 30m? Even though he terminated his contract?
I read that Sporting wants to sue Inter because allegedly they put a clause which says if Mario is registered with another Portuguese club, 30 million should be paid to Sporting?
Lol. Whoever was on our side in that dealing is an imbecile. How can you let that stand? It only makes sense that you put some % of future transfer fee.
Now the court may find that Inter had cheated Sporting by terminating contract with Mario so that he can join Benfica and still pay those 30 million.
€80 millionWe've made some very silly and expensive deals. Joao and Kondogbia both were 40 000 000 if Im correct.
Joao Mario was never a bad player, he just never was a 40m at that time. He was a 20-25m player max. And we got him with the expectation to lead the midfield which was a laughable request for someone who can only be used as a supplementary player.
It just wasn't meant to be. Money dictates expectations. If he was bought for 15m we wouldn't have called him a flop.
Kondogbia was a great talent but mentally he wasn't there so he wasted whatever potential he had.
Signing mentally weak players looks to be a recurrent theme for us. No idea why this is often overlooked.Kondogbia just didn't have the mentality to succeed at a top club. He admitted it himself in an interview few years later.
And low IQ players. I lose my shit after watching several players keep making dumb decisions when they can just make a simple but more effective decision instead. They constantly overcomplicate things by these dumb decisions.Signing mentally weak players looks to be a recurrent theme for us. No idea why this is often overlooked.
I really appreciate how inter and joao mario completely stiffed Sporting for being cunts
