    Karimi had a lot of talent and was special by Asian and Iranian standards, but elsewhere there are lots of players who have amazing skills but not the right work ethic.

    Take Brazil in the late 90s with guys like Djalminha and even Denilson. Absolutely genius on the ball and could do anything but just didn't have the personality traits.

    With Karimi it was clear from his one year suspension at the beginning that he would probably never live up to his talent. If anything I guess we should be happy we got things like the Asia Cup '05 performance and the images of him running through Ireland players in the WCQ and Roma players in the friendly....

    Na..come one. I thought he was over after 1 year suspension but the guy surprised the h*ll out of me. His 2001 WCQ campaign was pure magic even though we didn't qualify. It was about that time, he declined a serious offer from Atletico Madrid. I'm sure he could have gone places if he had taken the offer at that time.

    I agree with your comment in its entirety, and there is nothing you say here which is at odds with my post...

    Sometimes i have a feeling you are purposefully contrarian.

    baba didn't you say his suspension was the cause of him never living up to his talent? Read your text again. Why would I be a contrarian on purpose? lol

    semantics agha, "from his one year suspension at the beginning that he would probably never live up to his talent." given that you yourself thought "he was over", i think it reads like we were on the same page.

    uh...I thought you meant you see the suspension as the reason why he did not live up to his talent. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Karimi indeed had the potential to be one of the best in the world but what he had in talent, he totally lacked in ambition. He purposely selected to play in UAE instead of Europe so that he would be able to fly to Iran on weekends.

    And to think he had a legitimate offer to play at Athletico Madrid when he was young. 😔
