Who Asked Hugo Viana?

Who Asked Hugo Viana?

OK, I promised I would not write another article about Ronaldo leaving but this one is so hilarious that I had to do it.

Listen to Hugo Viana, one of those foreigners who came here and proved to be crap.

'At this moment he is one of the world's top three, along with Ronaldinho and Deco.

'He has worked really hard to get to this point and it won't be long before he moves to a more important club such as Barcelona or Real Madrid.

'It is difficult for a team like Manchester United to keep him.

'If Barcelona or Real Madrid really want him, they will sign him.

'He has not got much left at United. Furthermore, Spain is the perfect league for him.'

God. Don't forget, even Newcastle United proved too big for this young man who is currently on the bench at Valencia. His opinion is pure gold to Ronaldo, no doubt.

Anyway, this obsession with Spanish clubs is baffling. We often complain that the Premiership is overhyped but then what about Real Madrid and Barcelona? The hype that surrounds them is unbelievable.

Surely, anyone who saw Real playing in the last 4 years would not say they are a more important club that Manchester United. Barcelona are top of the Spanish league - due to the lack of competent rivals as their own form is inconsistent to say the least.

So why should anyone think Spain is the perfect league for Ronaldo? Hugo Viana speaks about United as if they were the same calibre among clubs as he was among players - a mediocre, never-would-be trickster.

And I love this attitude: 'If Barcelona or Real Madrid really want him, they will sign him.' And the Glazers and Gill will play golf or read newspapers while Barca and Real battle it out for our prized asset?

'It is difficult for a team like Manchester United to keep him.'

We are not Watford, dear Hugo. And not Newcastle and believe me, we are even a lot bigger than Sporting or Valencia. Just remember this before you'll make a fool of yourself in the press again.

Its obvious judging from his ludicrous payrise demands that he considers himself above Man u, he is only there because he could'nt weasel his way out of his contract this season, which after the world cup he tried his utmost to accomplish. There is no way on earth he will be at old trafford next season.
