Calcio Comment: Now It’s Official – Maicon Is Finished

Carlo Garganese slams the decision by Inter to not sell a clearly washed-up Maicon to Real Madrid in the summer following another horror-show against Spurs…

Every summer there is a transfer saga involving Inter. It concerned Ricardo Quaresma in 2008, Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2009, and this year Douglas Maicon. All three players have something in common…things didn’t go particularly well in the ensuing season for any of them, leaving you wondering what all the fuss was about.

Throughout June and July, I strongly urged Inter to sell Maicon to Real Madrid. I repeated these statements following the Brazilian’s disappointing performance in the Derby d’Italia draw with Juventus where he made no mark against the modest Paolo De Ceglie and Zdenek Grygera.

The story is too old to be commented.

I dont think he should be considered to be finished. He came up against one of the best young players in europe. A lot of players have struggled against bale this season

Bale is one of the best in the world Maicon is not a finished product but Bale is currently league above him
