Calciomercato.com analyzes the continual trips to Brazil by Branca which, unfortunately, he always comes back with nothing.
“If these two trips are proof, perhaps Marco Branca would be best to not book any more trips by airplane. From Villas Boas to Lucas, also Carlos Tevez, when the Inter technical director took flight from Milan, he always came back empty-handed.”
The site then adds:
“It is certainly not his fault. For example, the demand to acquire the Sao Paulo player threw Branca away. Moratti stalled negotiations and PSG emerged from nowhere with the usual truckload of millions of euros. Result: goodbye Lucas. But if there is no money then you cannot ask for miracles. Sure, the technical director has some responsibility. He apparently, does not have the great appreciation from the players. He is not loved by the fans especially after the farewell of Oriali.”
Concludes with a suggestion.
“In this technological age in emails, phones, social networks, we would give Branca a suggestion: no more flights, they bring bad luck.”
