    Sure, but he will be there. Never underestimate the heart of Figo when he is pissed at public perception. " Figo is too old. He is done " There is still some major fight and pride in this lion. ;)

    Very good question thought, One has to wonder, he did quit the first time citing that he was getting to tired with all the games he was playing.

    We have all made decisions or statements that once we have time to reflect on, we wish we could have changed. Now this time, he knows full well what he is going into, so Im sure he is prepared to handle it. The work load is a known quantitiy for him and yet he wants to embrase it.

    As soon as Portugal Qualifies for the World Cup ( If they do ) Figo & Ronaldo should be given all the Friendly off until they get called to the National team for the actual World Cup. ( That will be 4 or 5 games they will not have to worry about.)

    I doubt the coach will give so many games off, they will need to work plays with other new guys

    Re: Figo with Milan...But, will he now be OVERWORKED before the WC06?


    I have to disagree here Roy. The NT needs to play together to build team chemistry and get to know each other. Not to mention Ronaldo's been leading the team so far in qualifers, scoring and setting every one up. While resting him and Figo sounds good on paper I'd prefer to see them working together.

    As for the original question, I think playing for Inter will hurt Figo on the NT. Looking back at Euro 04 Figo only had 1 great game against Holland. Compare that to the 2 qualifiers he recently played in where he was outstanding. Not to mention Serie A starts and ends later then most leagues which could also hurt him.

    First of all I doubt Figo will play every minute of every game for Inter. They already have a deep lineup. Secondly, every player will have time to recover prior to the WC as they will be given time off to rest and prepare. Lastly the same question could be asked of Ronaldo, Carvalho, Deco, Andrade - all players who will be worked like horses this season.

    That's what the Udinese players will need after having to chase Sporting players all over the field

    Re: Figo with Milan...But, will he now be OVERWORKED before the WC06?

    umm....NO
    Just to straighten out what you said, Baggio was finished in 1998 (look up his age). Signori never played on the national team past World Cup 1994 and Zola was in and out of the lineup up until 1997-98 where he was then never called back.

    I dont think Figo is done, he has 2 good years left in him but he is definitely past his best days and is exactly like Roberto Baggio was around 1998-1999. Still a star but just a shadow of his former self.

    Figo will never play the full 90 minutes, he will start most games and be substituted in the second half most of the time. Inter are way too deep and Mancini knows what Figo has left in him and would never want him to burn out. Inter have Recoba, Pizzaro, Veron, Vandermeyde, Zanetti, Solari, and Kily Gonzalez who can help out in the midfield.

    i agree...Figo won't play 90 minutes and complete games. He will be great help to Portugal if we want to win the WC06

    Re: Luxemburgo was the reason Figo left[R]

    ACERCA DA SAÍDA DO PORTUGUÊS DO REAL MADRID
    Arrigo Sachi: «Presidente ficou desgostoso por Luxemburgo dispensar Figo»

    Arrigo Sachi, director desportivo do Real Madrid, disse que a saída de Luís Figo dos “galácticos” se deveu somente a uma decisão do treinador: “Foi uma decisão de Vanderlei Luxemburgo que o presidente respeitou com desgosto.”

    Em declarações ao diário espanhol AS, o italiano "abriu o livro" sobre o momento actual do clube merengue e a saída do português foi um dos temas abordados.

    Na opinião do ex-técnico italiano, o internacional português “saiu com desgosto e deixou escapar algumas palavras a mais."

    De qualquer forma, pensa que a relação entra as duas partes não saiu tocada: "Penso que a relação entre o Real e Figo foi e será sempre boa. Com o tempo confirmaremos isto mesmo."

    Re: Luxemburgo was the reason Figo left[R]

    Wasn't Luxemburgo head coach for the Brazilian NT, that Scolari had to come in to salvage a WC qualification and win the WC?

    This guy sucks as coach, he's cocky and can't back it up.

    At least Mourinho is cocky, but he backs it up with trophies.
