Problems with the undercarriage, but they landed safely on a foam carpet, don't worry. Only Malpensa Airport had to be closed for an hour

A birthday to remember, indeed

Default Rui Costa involved in emergency landing at Milan

ROME (AP) - A private jet carrying Portuguese soccer star Manuel Rui Costa and his family made an emergency landing at Milan's Malpensa airport Tuesday after its landing gear malfunctioned, officials said.

Airport officials said there were no injuries among the 11 people on board the jet, which was arriving from Sharm el Sheik, Egypt. Rui Costa, who plays for AC Milan, was celebrating his 33rd birthday. "It was a real shock. I didn't think as much about myself as my family. I was really worried about them," Rui Costa said at his club's training center in Milanello, just outside Milan, later Tuesday.

Airport spokeswoman Carla Fusati said the wheels of the jet had locked en route to Italy and couldn't open. Firefighters prepared the runway with anti-incendiary foam so the plane could land on its undercarriage, she said. Air traffic was halted for about an hour so the plane could make its landing.
Eight of the people on board were passengers and three were crew members, Fusati said.

Default An Ode For Rui Costa

Hey guys I just happened to come to terms with the great service that Rui Costa is doin' to Milan. He doesn't get enough first-team football, which has something to do with his age, but that doesn't change anything when he goes to Portugal : he's still a star. And one of the biggest there. Yet, he's been plying his trade with Milan, after so unjustifiably sold off from Fiorentina, and I feel he's done a fairly good job when called upon. After all, he's done quite job, hasn't he, what with he being expected to replace Kaka?

But if u have confronting views and feel he doesn't deserve his place, then i'd be glad if u let me know it. I'd also be equally glad to get positive feedback on his game. So guys, please keep posting!

Yeah I agree, It hurts me to see him on the bench all the time. But when he plays he always does a good job.
I hope he stays for another couple of years

Forza Rui

Although Rui is not performing like when he was at Viola, he still a very good player...
Milan need him as back up for Kaka or Pirlo....
Hope he will stay for another few season...

He WAS.

Other than getting a half-decent job done when the requirement of the minute is to slow things down + maintain possession in midfield (without creating much ) I really don't see much service .. let alone the great service .. he's been doing. His failure to deliver (among other things) has cost us the championship in 2003 + we rushed for Kaka' to add sth our game started to miss: acceleration + pace. With teams more adapted to Kaka' + capable of effectively neutralizing him we seem back at square one in this regard. I don't mind Rui 'serving' as a bencher, since he doesn't seem to be the type with a huge sense of entitlement regarding playing time, + fielding him when we need to contain opponents by keeping control of midfield. Generally, our objective however should be to outperform + outplay the opponent + not outbore them.

That said, other players would serve us better.

Oh, + I haven't even mentioned his age yet….
