Arsenal Message Board
Have to say I feel sorry for Man U fans who have their hearts broken in two seasons in a roll - firstly they lost the bidding war on Lucas Moura to PSG last season; secondly Thiago chose to go to the newly crowned European Champions and work with Pepe instead of Moyes.
I still don't believe he's as good as many Man U fans claim and how over-excited they were about Thiago though, he's defo not the second coming of Cesc by any stretch of the imagination, imo, but I will defer to the greater wisdom of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the Bayern chief executive, who said about the signing that "He is a fantastic player with great promise who will strengthen FC Bayern."
Best of luck to Thiago at Bayern!
Im not suprised Thiago picks Bayern over United as most players would do the same. Besides who wants to play with our craps, aka Welbeck, Cleverly et al. Rooney questioned Uniteds inability to attract top players a few seasons ago, he may be wrong to have said that publicly, but I think there’s some truth to what he said.
