i think if figo ready to take a big pay cut in his wages,then we should sign him...but he stil demands for high wages,then it will be a waste of money as he can only play for a few more seasons..
when your pocketing millions a year, your a world famous star, he should at least have the sportsmanship to stay on the field. yes it shows he cared, and i understand why he was so angry, but in my eyes leaving your team and walking off completely is just disgracing your country in a way. (thats just my opinion). also, think of all the kids who look up to this guy, when somethign little happens what if they go and do that? i think the worlds "top" players should at least be able to set an example for sportsmanship. im not sure abotu this, did he shake hands with the french team after the game? if he did then ok, but if not, i really have no respect for the guy at all, no matter how heart breaking his loss was. when neddy got his yellow in the champions league semi final, and knew he would miss his dream after all his hard work and dedication, he had the class not to flip out and dis-honor his team.
thats just the opinion of a 14 yr old, sorry if you disagree
