WTF does that mean?

Maldini Hails Ronaldinho, Scoffs At Inter

Ronaldinho is great as far as Maldini is concerned, but, unsuprisingly, he didn't have the same opinion when it came to Inter...

Milan legend Paolo Maldini has hailed Ronaldinho and he believes the Brazilian ace has integrated into the side well.
The Rossoneri are currently on their way to Dubai for their annual tour and a number of players boarded a flight from Malpensa to the United Arab Emirates at around 1:30pm GMT.
Before leaving, Maldini spoke to Milan Channel to give his views on 'Dinho and Scudetto rivals Inter.
"I never really knew Ronaldinho before he came here, however, he has a nice image on the pitch because he is not a grumpy player," Maldini said.
"He has incredible qualities too. It was the press who spoke badly of him in the past and many things were said which were not true, but this is normal when a player doesn't get along with his club.
"Ronaldinho has settled down well here and he is always available for the team."
Il Capitano also had some words on the league leaders. Maldini believes Inter are solid, but he insists Milan have better qualities.
"They (Inter) are more powerful and it's true that they train for certain characteristics in order to win cups and competitions," added the stopper.
"However, we have other qualities."

And what other qualities is he referring to? You mean qualities of dishonesty, lying, cheating, bribing, talking to linesmen? What the hell is he going on about? Someone clue me in!!!

He's talking about experience , these oldies don't bother with training if they did ,they won't have enough energy to play in official matches.

In fact I heard Carlo Ancelotti was the first one to buy a PS3 to compensate for the lack of training and try out different tactics.

I think he means skill with the ball all over the pitch, keeping posession, etc. As to you being more solid, it means they have a shit defence and you have a good one.

As for training for cups, your team, maybe against or with intention, is truly only geared for Serie A, which is common knowledge. That is my interpretation.

seriously who cares what he means? the article translation slash the person who conducted the interview (the part regarding inter) is shaddy at best. What power is he referring to? Mentality? Physical? Financial? Train to win cups and competitions? Doesn't Milan do the same? Doesn't ANY team and sport do the same?

I wouldn't put to much neurons into this article Puls, it's apparent the person who conducted it didn't either.

I think the whole point of competition was training for characteristics to win?

I could be wrong.

Based on what is written....

Its obvious that he meant showbiz football.

Thats what people like wenger try to say when they are not-doing-so-good.

"we play to entertain" bla bla bla
Somewhere in those lines.

Example of their fans in XT talked about frugality being the most important thing in the world, or merda-lab in the process of producing reverse-ageing substances, or believing-costs-nothing, or preach blind 'faithing'.
