We got him as part of the Inzaghi deal, and I really doubt he cost that much... around 13 mil €...

Not the biggest, but that's quite a lot of money to spend on a player who doesn't play...

Marcelo Salas ... Didn't we pay £18 milion (€25 million) for him? I mean, that's insane considering what he did for the club!

Yeah But salas is a different case!!!!! he had shown alot of good football with Lazio, we got him he started well!!!! but then he was never able to recover from that injury!!!!! look at DP he was in a similar position! in my opinion if salas got the chances and i stress on the S in chanceS! he might of have recovered his form!

That's besides the point. "IF" is of absolutely NO use in this discussion so drop it already. Fact is that we lost 18 million pounds AND Kovacevic on this guy and did NOTHING for us. Zip. Nil. Zero. Nothing. Niente!

Oh, it's not fair to say he did nothing. I'd always wanted a juve player who has a palindromic name :)

Salas is a bad deal i never said otherwise!!!!

but he ísn't the only place we lost money, look at Baiocco, Zennoni, Athirson, Kovacevic, (the guy we got from Fiorentina and sold to Bologna) ..... etc Not to forget Di Vaio still hasn't delivered his money worth.

but then again look at the players we got for cheap prices but were able to deliver DP, Zidane, Camo, Zambrotta ... etc and hopefully Miccoli will be on this list!!!!

the system in juventus involves alot of risk! sometimes you win and the player delivers and sometimes you have a bad investment!!!

get used to it!

as I remember it, it was 13 million dollars plus Kovacevic.

the deal was a big failure, but we couldn't know that when we signed him. he used to be great in Lazio and he should have been great in Juve too, if he didn't get injured :(
Kovacevic's succes with Sociedad makes us jelous and regret now that we sold him, but I think it was unavoidable because he wanted to play more!

wow I didn't know we payed so much for Zenoni :eek:
but he did contribute and he was a great prospect when he played for Atalanta. the proof is that Milan wanted him too.

so we had some bad deals and wastes of money (Baiocco, Athirson, Moretti, Salas, Zenoni..), but overall I think we'r spending money wisely.
sometimes we even get a lot from players that we almost didn't pay for (Camoranesi, Trezeguet, Del Piero, Zambrotta...)

I think it's really unfair and wrong to put Kova in this list. He delivered when he got a chance, we just shouldn't have sold him.

It's true. The whole deal with Kova was really messed up. He should have been played more, an effort should have been made based upon his performance. They did that for Salas without a second thought, but they never did it for Kova. Then Juve just sells him like he's no good and we see now that he's a world class player.

As I know, unfortuantely he gets a very little chance to play in Samp, but when I saw him playing, he was great! :thumb:
