See, Juninho shouldn't do this and only because he's Juninho. Perhaps he's the type who doesn't understand his own strength, or has never really understood how good his free kicks really are. Not everyone can hit a ball like him. Obviously, the greater crime is Jimmy Nielsen completely hamming it up.

Apesar de só ter jogado uma época em Portugal, Joseph Enakarhire deixou saudades na generalidade dos adeptos sportinguistas. O central nigeriano representou os "leões" na época 2004/2005 e impôs-se pela sua estampa física e ser forte na marcação. Contudo, esteve longe de fazer a carreira que muitos lhe auguravam.
Muito se escreveu em Janeiro sobre a imprudência do Sporting em pretender contratar Marius Niculae por o ponta-de-lança romeno já ter jogado por dois clubes na presente época, algo que, luz dos regulamentos da FIFA, o impediria de representar um terceiro clube até 30 de Junho deste ano.

Rabiu Ibrahim continua a dar-me razão e teima em não se conseguir impor no escalão sénior. O médio nigeriano acaba de ser libertado do Celtic, onde dispôs de poucas oportunidades para mostrar o seu valor, e assinar pelos também escoceses do Kilmarnock. Deste modo, o atual sétimo classificado da Liga escocesa é o terceiro clube que o jovem de 21 anos, - que com idade de juvenil terá sido disputado por diversos grandes clubes europeus – representa, após também não ter tido sucesso no PSV.
