The same applies to his time with the Dutch national team, from which he was ultimately expelled. Or does van Nistelrooy represent a certain kind of player, one who plays for himself (and does a damn good job of it) but who ultimately, in some subtle way, disrupts the team? Let’s be clear: any striker who scores goals sees his contribution benefit his team; after all, the goals don’t count merely in the top-scorers chart.

But when he arrived in this country the difficulty in repeating that feat was that the two rich clubs in England also happened to be more focused and better-managed (from top to bottom) than the two Spanish giants, who seemed to have too much of a self-destruct mentality –– certainly when it came to the hiring and firing of coaches, interference from the board, and the existence of a ‘superstar’ culture amongst their players.
