INFO:

Rui Manuel César Costa, or Rui Costa as he is more popularly called, is a very famous Portuguese footballer. He is thought to be one of the greatest midfielders of his generation and he mostly represented Benfica during his career. Rui Costa is the current director of football for Benfica. The greatest football player in the world – Pele – called as one of the most influential midfielders in recent years. Rui Costa was known for his technique and ability to find the man with his passing skills. He started his career with Benfica, but he made his debut for Fafe after being loaned out by Benfica.

At the start of the 1991 season, he returned to Benfica and soon became an established member of the side. He spent three more years with the Portuguese club and made 101 appearances. His performances soon attracted the attention of a number of clubs across Europe. Fiorentina stepped up their interest in the youngster and brought him for a relatively low €6 million in the summer of 1994. He spent seven years with Fiorentina during which he made 239 appearances. Soon, he was considered as one of the greatest midfielders in Europe.

Hence, it is not surprising to learn that AC Milan were prepared to pay as much as £30 million for Rui Costa. It was the record transfer deal for AC Milan, but the club thought that Costa was more than worth it because he managed to outshine the likes of Zinedine Zidane in the Italian Serie A. It was with AC Milan that Costa experienced the most successful stage of his career. With Milan, Costa won the likes of the Champions League and the Serie A title.

However, the arrival of Kaka from Sao Paulo changed the fortunes of the Portuguese midfielder, who was relegated to the bench due to the impressive form shown by the Brazilian. After spending some time on the bench, Costa decided to return to Portugal with his first club Benfica.

Some points over the Milan set should be discussed.

STA should be stay in low green numbers (75/76) he was at that seasons a static amf, very stiff into from the area, he barely run on the matches, guess that comes from his age, and from the lack of constancy of play every giornata, since Kaká always was the first choice of Ancelotti. That also has to affect the value of CON since he was sometime the old rui and some matches and in others a poor(really) playmaker.

I guess that Talisman is added there cause' his apps in the portuguese NT since in milan at least in those seasons i don't remember him like the leader of the game for Milan. :|
