All eyes point to the directors of athletics. It seems that between Maxi and Liverpool have a big messed it up the Triad Cerezo, Pitarch and Gil. They have not sold last summer to a player who looked like a get out, are directly responsible for the Atletico has not scratched anything in this operation.
They say the club will save more than 1.7 million by not paying the tab Maxi yet here until June, but it would have saved anyway if he had now sold in January, and not given. The problem is that the upper hand was the player in this story.
Maxi because he knew that had no place in the team, Quique Sanchez Flores had no more with him. And he knew that if another club would bid with a concrete offer (say, four or five million), the Beast could have simply said no, that does not appear to leave the club. Because the contract would run out in June and there he would choose where to go, utterly oblivious to what he says Atletico.
Say, then, that the Triad has left Atletico at bay. Through negligence, yes, for having failed to sell Maxi at the right time, and have allowed the player to attain this situation of virtual fill in the template, which could have been, however, a perfect product to profit from the market.
Rafa Benitez, who is smarter than one, would not evaluate the performance of athletes in this transaction, but highlighted them with a subtle statement. “I know that Maxi was not doing as good as ever at Atletico , but he was doing well with the Argentina national team. And he wants to impress everyone for the World Cup 2010 “.
Well, this “was not doing so well” might be the fault of the directors of Atletico, who failed to renew and / or transferred on time. And that yes he was doing well in Argentina “is what Rafa will use to convert to Maxi, a major component of Liverpool. In a wild, eager for revenge.
