Re: Leandro Pimenta - Benfica youth product
Another great joke.
Sporting is by far the best youth system in portugal in the last couple of years. Every year there's a new "future star", overrated by the media, or not, they just don't stop producing them altough they loose a lot of competitivity with that. Then you have benfica and porto.
It's kind of funny the way you're trying to convince people otherwise by bombarding the forum with threads, that compare Porto and Sporting's youth system and leave Benfica behind.
As for the fact that we don't produce players in the last 20 years, you have Hugo Leal (what a player, could have had a rui costa type of career if he wasn't stupid leaving to atletico madrid for the money), Edgar (awesome player, departed to soon for spain to play for real madrid), Joao Pereira (will challenge the Rb spot in the national team very soon), Manuel fernandes (What a player!!), Paulo Sousa (Awesome player, not a very good person altough), Jorge Ribeiro (best Portuguese Lb), Ruben Amorim (Very, very regular Player), Miguel Lopes (Will play in your team next season), Rui Costa (better then any player coming out of porto youth system), Maniche (He was a product of our youth system) , and a couple of more that i don't remember right now that had a very solid career in Portugal or around the world.
It's a fact that we don't produce as we used to, we were the best in portugal at doing that, and we can thank our dear president vale e azevedo for destoying our youth systam, but now, we are ready again to start producing talents, it's just a matter of waiting for Pimenta, Yartei, Simão, Saná and Nelson Oliveira to grow a little until the end of the season.
