Must say Rui Costa is a bit of a genius as a GM. How much money has he made by selling players at ridiculess prices for Benfica in recent years? Ramires, Coentrao, David Luiz Witsel, Garcia.... 40M euro's for Witsel... that's daylight robbery.

let him polish his GM skills a bit more in Benfica.

Then he should arrive at Milan for a crash course in robberies, buying players in zillion installments, buying players with charity food (bananas, mangos, kiwis , etc.) with the Great Bald Wizard and then he will be ready do be Milan's Gm.

i sincerely hope that we will get someone like him as our new Gm .. when galliani retires ...

That's the greatest video of Rui with Milan I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing.

I'm pissed off I didn't get to witness every single moment of his career. He's my perfect footballer.

Rui was the reason I started watching Milan... hated Kaka initially because he benched Rui. I used to wait all game long for Carlo to put him on.

Ashish i don't understand your over romanticising Rui Costa. To me he was even more overrated as a Milan player than Pirlo. At least Pirlo was among the best midfielders in the world in his heyday at Milan.

He was certainly less productive and Kaka basically displaced him as soon as he came.

4 Milan goals in 124 apps is pathetic for a Milan CAM. He was insanely good at Fiorentina I'll give you that. Also he had his shining moments with his national team.....but he was FAR less productive here despite his silky touches and skills.

^^ you must be kidding. You got those stats from, let me guess... wikipedia. His job was not scoring goals, he was one of the best playmakers of his generation. He dictated play, he made shit happen.

I dont know what you are saying .. Rui Costa is the ultimate luxury player in milan

I was so pissed off when they started playing kaka .. fuck kaka.. rui costa in 2003 cl final had my heart .. always great with portugal
he was magnificent with batigol , he is a great teammate , he didnt create a scene when kaka overtook him, ricky can run and pray as much as he want, when rui costa had the ball ... world stopped.. then there was chess match going on the field .. shit ... I miss it

Fuck ancelotti ..

its not about the amount of work he did it was those small things .. I am so biased but I think I am right :o

Dont even compare with pirlo .. what rui costa does is in front of their defense not inbetwen our defense .. classy man . classy general manager .. class hair :cool: whats there not to love about him .. I couldnt watch rui live in fiorentina :fp:

Well we all have our biases so no problem there. But you gotta admit, for his transfer fee, wages and rating etc compared to his OVERALL CONTRIBUTION, Pirlo was streets ahead of him. Skill wise he was a better player but even Pirlo's set pieces which I knock so much were waaaay better

Kaka came into his own in Rui's position and proved to be a vastly superior player at practically everything. Can't see what you're blasting Carlo for? It's mainly because of Ricky we won '07. Yes I understand scoring goals was not his main role, but as a CAM he scored/directly assisted far less than Pirlo who played much further behind at CM. yes he dictated play well no arguments there

Rui costa keeps the ball .. he would never allow a deportiva or liverpool debacle to happen .. a substitution at 75 minute against depor wasnt good enough :o oh well rui would have flown in the air to protect those set pieces and nesta./ gattuso stupidity

Rui costa keeps the ball and protects it ... similar to running the ball ... if your defense is not called upon there is a high chance you will not concede .. rui costa is a master at it .. people claim pirlo does the same but he does in front of our defense which is very dangerous ..and gutsy .. I dont like it personally
Rui wont win the cl by himself like kaka did .. fair enough that doesnt matter to me :o

Rui join Milan nearly in the end of his career, Kaka were not playmaker in that time, and guess who found Pirlo deeplying playmaker position after transfered to Milan?

they are all connected.

Pirlo assisted 72 goals in his whole career up until now in all competitions.
Rui Costa assisted 65 just in the 5 seasons with Milan.

And Pirlo had a lot easier job in the back,protected by the defence and gattuso or ambro helping him out, there was a lot more pressure up front on Rui Costa with opposition defences and defensive midfielders trying to close him down.

A lot of people are deluded by Pirlo's season with Juventus last year. He has to step up there and provide assists cause the forwards can't do it themselves and he has a lot more space to do so in a 5 man midfield, where they relieve him of opposition presure.

But overall, Rui Costa's individual skill, workrate, passing, playing under pressure, creating space, everything he did for the team, the effort he put in shits all over Pirlo.
