United - Horses for Courses?

United - Horses for Courses?

Last year was a classic example of watching what might have been.

Watching Diego Forlan illuminate the Europa League as he helped Atletico Madrid win the competition and then go on to play a starring role, for Uruguay, in the World Cup, you couldn`t help but ponder how Diego never quite made it at Old Trafford.

Similarly, another forward who never quite made it, Guiseppe Rossi, is also establishing something of a reputation on the European mainland. Rossi, currently playing also plying his trade in Spanish football, with Villareal, never really had the chance to carve out a career at Old Trafford.

Now whereas both players were, in the summer break, linked with a return to the Premier League, Rossi seems quite intent to remain in Spanish football having suggested that he`s quite happy to stay where he is and has no intention of moving back to English football.

We could debate all day why both players never really made the grade at Old Trafford but have since gone on to carve out formidable reputations elsewhere.

I guess we could even throw the name of Juan Sebastian Veron into the equation as well. Veron never quite made it at United, or indeed Chelsea for that matter, but remains a world respected midfield maestro when he pulls on the Argentine shirt.

Could it be that all three fell victim to the horses for courses culture? Proving, in the process, that the Premier League is unique and that it`s lung busting, no time on the ball traits really do not suit everybody?

Drop us a few thoughts in the comments box below if you have any views on the subject matter.

Well atleast we know not all our flops are flops at football completely, atleast there was some reasoning behind some of our transfer blunders.
