    Yea Nuñez is a thief and Gaspar a dumb but Figo's not a gentlemen. A real gentlemen doesn't sign a contract with both, Fiorentina and Barça, just before leaving Sporting.

      uh, it was Juve and Parma ... and he obviously accepted the advice of his agents, who he'd trust by definition ... if it weren't for the muddle in Italy caused by his agents, Barça would never have got him ...

          it's the first time I'm hearing anything about Fiorentina ... and he signed with Barça after the Parma-Juve muddle ... again, it was his agents' doing ...

          you've got no case, mate ... you're just holding a grudge against Figo coz you are a Catalan culé who wants to blame the player and not the incompetent club president[s] for his departure to the "enemy" ...

            I was like 10 years old when he left so i don't exactly know what it happened but if someone trade Barça for Madrid after 5 seasons and being club captain is a traitor. You have to understand that.

            EDIT: He was lying 'till the last day, there's a firts page of sport or elmundodeportivo with Figo with a Barça scarf saying "i'm not going anywhere, i love barça and blah blah blah" just few days before sign for Madrid. Maybe he thought Florentino wouldn't beat Lorenzo Sanz...

              traitor?

              if it was unprovoked, then yes ... but if the player was betrayed by the club management first, then no ... Figo's is the latter case ...

                  Figo did want to stay ... but he signed with Real Madrid a couple of days after Gaspart beat Núñez ... so clearly there are more factors involved than you care to admit ...

                  I feel Barça betrayed Figo coz he signed to win big trophies with the club ... but Núñez was never willing to pay top salaries to his star players, and kept selling them ... how can you win the big trophies if you are going to keep selling your star players when they can demand top-level salaries? football is a job like any other ... the privilege and honour stuff comes second ...

                  I was 10 when Núñez sold Ronaldo, and couldn't understand it; even today I consider it one of the stupidest decisions ever ...

                  Figo won every trophy with Real Madrid within 2 seasons of being there ... from a sporting point of view, he made the perfect choice ...

                    But Gaspart does pay insane wages to everyone, why did he sign for Madrid then? the pre-contract with Florentino was already signed before, Pérez take advantage from Barcelona's power vacuum to get Figo.

                      coz Gaspart is a typical megalomaniac club president, who would have enjoyed his predecessor's star player and captain being sold in exchange for a world record fee?

                        No way, Gaspart and Nuñez are close friends and he actually says "Figo se irá al Madrid por encima de mi cadáver".

                          well, he lived through it, so Gaspart was being unnecessarily laconic ... and don't tell me he didn't want that world record sack of cash to kick-start his reign ...

                          Gaspart is no gentleman, and showed that he's an idiot too (he spent ALL that Figo cash AND MORE on overpaying for guys like Manu Petit, Gerard López, Geovanni, Rochemback, Christanval, etc.) ...

                          Luís Figo has always been a class act, both before and since that incident ... there are factors that triggered his decision that will never be accepted by Barcelona fans ... but that doesn't change my opinion of Figo ...

                            This whole Figo shenanigan has been talked and proved over and over again that Veiga and a couple of other morons were to blame. Of course in the mind of a fan he could have always shouted in the streets that he wouldn't go, chained himself to the Nou Camp and forget all about all the rest, but that's just not how life works.

                            I understand that he'll forever be a traitor to Barça fans, but sometimes you think something is one way when it's a totally different thing.
