Best 1 on 1 defender I've ever seen live pal. Read a game, pace to burn and a right nasty **** when needed.
Except in the derby when Giggs ran at him, pointed to where he wanted Giggs to go, which he did, and then promptly smashed the ball in the back of the net.

Loved Keith Curle but that day he messed up badly.

To be fair he was one on one with Giggs, who was lightning at that time and he held him up and forced him into a hopeful 20-yard shot, he wasn’t to know Eike Immel was going to get beat on his near post!

Ironically I think the pointing was to your namesake as it was the only place Giggs could shoot. Unfortunately we had a statue in net (another Ball fuck up).

That's how I always interpreted that, he was pointing to the keeper to make sure he covers his near post first and foremost.

Down in the tube station at midnight.

To be fair, he showed Giggs on to his right foot and pointed into the top corner, where he then actually put it. The only person more surprised than Curle that it went in was Giggs....

Sevilla
Hi, I'm from Sevilla and I'm going to clarify some details that I'm reading to you and that I understand that you don't know.

First, Sevilla is a selling club. It is our club model, thanks to which we have managed to win more titles than in our entire history in 15 years and which has made us achieve stability without external money in a region that is quite economically depressed.

Our fans is used to selling our stars almost every year, it is a way to amortize a player and get an economic and sports performance that allows us to reach other players with potential. That is why Monchi declared the other day that our club model is what it is and that he understands that the fans ask for "clause or nothing" since there are many people who think that we should keep our best players longer.

The player for whom we would like to have raised money is Diego Carlos, but it has not been possible, that is why with Kounde we are being tougher than we would have been with DC since he has a promising future and it is believed that it can be withdraw money almost the same as the termination clause.

Kounde also has two details to take into account and for which we cannot sell cheaply: we have to pay 20% of the capital gains of a future sale to his home club and it cost us 25 million. The economic return that we would obtain for him for an offer of 60 million is very small.

Do I think it will come out? We had to wait first for the European Super Cup to finish, but after the final, if an offer close to 70 million comes, I think it could come out. As I say, we are a selling club and Monchi with that money could do magic, bring a new Kounde and two more players who give more potential to the squad.

Is Kounde worth them? He has a long way to go, but he has tremendous potential, I don't know how he will fit into English football, he has a good head but is short and has a very good ball pass, although he has problems with crossed balls. But for example, Sergio Ramos left here with much less demonstrated than this boy and you saw his career.

I hope I have clarified a little doubts.

See ya guys!
