Eagle I'll tell you why I think he doesn't call salihi and the rest of the bunch you mentioned. You have to have a real agenda to think that a proffessional manager is going to risk his career and integrity by geting a few thousand dollars here and there, that could in turn cost him his entire future in that profession.
The guys you mentioned are the usual "prima-donas" of our football. They think they are the shit, will play individual football and willl not do as they are told. Now as a manager I would replace those even if I had to with "garbage" players as you put it, just so I could create a team. And a team is an entity of players collaborating with each other. Most of the players Brigel has issues with are players that would not obey the coach and will do as they please. You can't have that in a team. Brigel showed all those "*****" their place, and that a team can achieve better results using the "garbage" players that play as a team than the best players playing individual football.
Just remember my words, when Vata or some other ass becomes coach, uses the players you mentioned and we hear the same stories we had heard for years on end, and we see the same football and results we used too. Only then you might understand that a good players, that shows off (so that he can get to a better team) in an international match by going the entire length of the game on a "look-at-me" spree, messess up the game of the entire team and has no place in that squad.
