petit

tell me more about him please.?

How do you rate him, what kind of player he is(i heard he's a true pitbull).
has he a french passport?
Why media talks about him just now(he's near 27 or something like that).
he can hope to go to germany 2006, cause there's a lot of player in middlefield of portuguese squad(costinha, maniche, tiago, etc...).

thanks to you.

Petit is a defensive midfielder at it's best. He's capable of precise and opening passes, while he gains the ball from his opponents in high frequency. He's a true fighter, not a dirty player though. He has class and experience from which a whole team benefits. He can make the game calm and fast the same. He's the type of the player who would try and stop a Roberto Carlos shot from 3 metres on the own goalline with his breast and his loyalty is constated with a newly signed contract that will keep him at Da Luz for the following years to which he himself refers as 'the contract of my life'. Petit was the secret behind Boavista's championship-campaign in 2001, the missing link to stabilize Benfica's midfield ever since he signed for them and an undisputable keyplayer in their successfull 2005 championship-campaign. When Benfica this very preseason strenghened their midfield with big names such as Karagounis and Karyaka, a lot of starters have been in doubt ... he was never amongst them. He is the kind of player you cannot replace so easily, he is to our Benfica what a Guardiola was to Barcelona, a Vieira to Arsenal or an Edgar Davids to Juventus many years and, I can not hold it back after all those words of praise, he is terrible in setpieces.
To resume, Scolari would have to be mad when not picking such a complete defensive midfielder as him for the World-Cup-squad.

Força Petit! A alma do nosso jogo!!!

Remember that setpiece against Russia, that was incredible on Petit's part.

oh

Thanks to you all.
That's cool.


In france tv spoke about him like a true pitbull.So he's a very good player, but why scolari don't take him?
And why he become a good player around 27?(but makelele become great around the same age, maybe it's special for pitbull like them).

That's very much the same here. He's predestined to take the free kicks in our own half, due to his vision and passing skills, but he should leave those near the box to Simão.
However, that one against Russia was good indeed and I remember he once scored a similar one for Benfica (can't recall when though).

I'm not sure whether he's a starter always but he gats his games and Scolari knows quite well, what a player he has there I reckon. But he has to fight for the place in the team with the likes of Costinha and Tiago, even Maniche can play there.

He was a good player with Boavista already when he was younger. But he still develloped at a club like Benfica and nowadays reaches his prime Figo as well did best around that age.

That's true pires has a portuguese passport.
But, you have too many wingers in your NT(simao, ronaldo,quaresma, etc...), for a place for pires.

Ehh..I know I was just kidding ya. Plus, you wouldn't want Petit if you have Makelele and Viera. Petit is a very good, hard-working player, however, his emotions tend to get the best of him and that's when he's not at his best. With that said, I still wouldn't trade him for either. He is probably one of the most fearless footballers if not the most in this game today.

Defensive Midfielder
Vital part of the team
National team player
Strengths: gives it all the on field, hard straight shot, challenges every ball. Looks like a small guy but hits like a boxing heavyweight champ

Scored 2 goals in the last game.
