Sounds harsh, but what a waste of talent. He could have been one of this countries greatest ever players. Players with his raw talent don't come along often here and it's a shame looking at where he is now. Should have been encouraged to develop into that number 10 role he so obviously is capable of playing. Fell victim to Mourinho's 4-3-3 system and got pushed out wide too often though, shame.
Anyway, sounds like an odd suggestion, but I think he could have *Sliding. There's a lot of footage on youtube of him and there's compilation videos which show him running back and sliding to win the ball expertly on a number of occasions. I was watching a load of videos on him a awhile ago and was impressed enough to think he could warrant the card. I suppose it's only a youtube video though so...
