Well said Manuel. Bobby Robson was well admired by Figo and this may have contributed to Viana's signing.manuel said:Its good hes gone to newcastle though. Bobby Robson will give young players a chance he showed by giving Ameobi and Jenas regular spots in the first team. I think under his care Viana could do well. But still i wished he had stayed in Portugal longer.
I believe that Viana may have contacted Figo for his opinion.
