Well it wasn’t the ideal start to the year that Klass-Jan’s hoped for, but the curse has been removed and the draught is over. Huntelaar struggled to adjust to Serie A football in the beginning of the season and the former Real Madrid forward likely felt like the elementary school kid eating lunch all alone. Used sparingly and often talked about in transfer rumors, Klaas-Jan decided he wanted to stick it out with Milan and has shrugged off reports he is leaving. The twenty three year old proved his worth last weekend when he scored his first two goals on the year for Leonardo’s crew. And the best part: Both goals came in extra time.
Alberto Diego Milito
With all the talk about Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka this off-season nobody really ever focused on the move of Milito over to Inter from Genoa. Well now that the season is going in full force, Milito has put his foot in critic’s mouths worldwide by perhaps playing like the Most Valuable Player of the entire league. Milito scored the lone goal in their battle against Fiorentina on a penalty kick and the Argentine forward now has nine goals in league play.
Listing Greco as a Top Performer is especially bizarre this week because the twenty six year old forward has never started a Serie A match in his career. Well it wouldn’t matter last weekend for Bari as they battled Siena. Greco, the man nobody has ever heard of, made everyone at the stadium leave screaming his name as he was the man who scored in extra time giving Bari a 2-1 victory.
