Teams: SL Benfica
tbh i never rated him as high as u guys seem to have to.....im sorry, havent seen much of him to justify all the "great potential" label everyone seems to stick on the guy, and maybe thats why im not expecting much from him now
at 15, 16, 17, players are still very young, and some will develop to become excelent, some will remain average, and some better forget about a professional career
thing is we have this obssession with discovering new talents, and sooner than we should, start labelling them.
regarding benfica alone, in fairly recent times, i can think of the likes of verissimo, bruno bastos, bruno caires, bruno aguiar, pedro henriques, hugo leal, and i could go on
and no, its not only with benfica's youth, happens the same with sporting and with porto. In fact probably the best example i can recall of is dani
