Simão v Seitaridis
Posted by atleti on August 2, 2008
This may or may not be significant, but…according to AS, there was a heated argument between Simão and Seitaridis over a strong challenge by the Greek during a training session. Forlán, Miguel, & Cléber prevented the argument from escalating by pushing the two players away from each other.
Predictably, the rumour is that Seitaridis is frustrated with his current situation. He knows that he doesn’t figure into Aguirre‘s 08/09 plan, but he has yet to receive an acceptable offer out of the club.
In any case, we seem to have a reputation, especially in recent seasons, of internal conflicts, whether it be player versus player, player versus manager, manager v president, manager v sporting director, or president v supporters…
Remember last season?
Reyes v Aguirre
Reyes v Forlán
Maniche v Aguirre
Aguirre v Pitarch
And those are only the ones we know about. There could very well be more tension between other players that hasn’t been exposed to the press.
Do I expect everyone to get along famously? No. That’s unrealistic. Should they at least put their differences aside and RESPECT each other? Yes.
