Milan gun midfielder and Italian international Gennaro gattuso has come out in saying that people are growing tired of football.what he saw at messina when playing for Italy vs Finland spoke volumes,the people are fed up with everything there are to many games and in that regards they should also reduce the players wages.

he certainly is 100% the game is being dictated by money hungry people,They're burning out players and thus destroying their careers.Young players of the past did'nt play as often as today so is this one reason why players are being burnt out and can't perform on a consistant basis?

For the money 20 yo receive as footie pros, they can't expect to be protected like little babys.

Anyway, Gattuso might have a point, but the Finnland match indicates nothing. Honestly, if this Italian NT plays a team like Finnland and leaves the best 20-30 players at home playing with a bunch of average football players and being captained by a guy some Materazzi - which IMO has been the biggest disgrace happened to Italian football in the last decade - I am astonished they did not play in front of a completely empty stadium.

Nontheless I agree that football isnt taking a good road, WC02 was an indication, the pathetic efforts to aggressively open new markets for even more new money and sacrifying the beautie of the game itself for it is sickening.
