There was one factor above everyhing else...Mendieta came to Lazio overweight and in a bad shape. Add to that the fact that he was overrated (a good player but never worth all that money), it's not that big a mystery.

Or one might want to believe in a curse. Whichever...

I hear what you're saying, but he was extremely expensive and still did not bother to get in shape for the first season in his new team. I can't feel a least bit sorry for him. If you don't show respect for the fans, you're not bound to get any in return.

Cragnotti made a stupid and rushed deal to get him so it's his fault, of course. But Mendi should have given a better effort.

Kaka situation is very different...he came straight from Brazil as a young boy. Mendi was an experienced player who had played Champions league finals and everything. You're not supposed to be required to nurture a player like that.
