I love Veron but there is not point in keeping a player that doesn´t really want to play for the team - look at Parma.
No offense but Thuram, Buffon and Crespo all played lousy when they realised that Parma wasn´t going to the CL and then again after the winter break.
It´s unbelivable to me why Veron would want to leave Lazio after just having won Lo Scudetto but if he feels that he can do bigger things in another club ( Lazio was only ranked nr 1 for bigger parts of the season and took 3 trophies: Supercup, Italian Cup and Lo Scudetto ).
I don´t know but I´d rather keep Salas, Baronio and sell Veron to Real. There are will be another Veron in the future and we´ll just have to wait for one that will want to play for Lazio no matter what.
Win some loose some.
Lazio still has a great team and alot of money to spend. I say bring in Koller ( great player and the eastern guys don´t ***** ) team Salas up with Koller and Inzaghi.
There are alot of talanted players in europe, Deisler of Herta Berlin will become one of the best ever midfielders if he continues like this - Lazio give his parasite agent ( all agents are paraistes and they don´t deserve to live ) and hook him up !!
I think that alot of things will change in the future and I think it´s pretty obvious that Cragnotti doesn´t want to spend a fortune each season ( and he shouldn´t ). I don´t understand why people expect Lazio to go on a spending spree at the end of each season just because everyone else does so - please glance over your shoulder at Juventus !!! buy smart and for the future.
Lazio would be better of to invest in a stadium of their own so they won´t have to play for a semi full olimpico ( 45k average at a 83k capacity ).
Take a look at the Lazio attack for next season: Salas, Inzaghi, Lopez and Ravanelli.
Compare Juve: Inzaghi, Del Piero, Amoruso, Kovacevic.
Compare Roma: Delvecchio, Montella, Batistuta, Totti½, Poggi
Compare Inter: Vieri, Recoba, Zamorano, Muto, Baggio
Compare Milan: Sheva, Jose Mari, Weah, Bierhoff
Our first Choice Lopez is as good as any first choice in the pick and surley better then both Del Piero and Inzaghi of Juve, Montella, Delvecchio and Totti ( as an attacker ), Zamorano, Recoba, Muto and Baggio, Jose Mari and Bierhoff.
It´s ridiculous really !!
Midfield might not even change .. as it looks now Baronio will play ( probably ) but no real word on Almeyda leaving and the Veron thing ??
If real wants Veron then we should demand: Salgado and their central sweeper ( helguerra or something like that ).
That trade I´d go for then Inter could sign ***** and we´d have Salgado on the left and that Helguerra guy in the middle with Nesta ). As a central midfielder we´ll go for overrated Fiore
Sounds fair to me.
