    It wasn't his choice. Van Gaal didn't want him and essentially told him to find another team or he wouldn't be playing.

    He then made the bad choice of going to the black hole for Spanish players - Italy. He and Amor left for Lazio, almost never to be heard from again.

    It makes you wonder what in the world went wrong. He was a good player that just never lived up to expectation. He did get pretty screwed by Barça when they brought him back only to satisfy the cules who were getting pissed that they weren't signing any domestic talent. Even at Espanyol last year, he was never fit to go 90 minutes.

    I agree with Liverpool_SC, he even rejected a move to Greece due to their low wages!
