I never said he was not a success, i said that his situation was different. If he wanted to he could have gone to Man Utd at various times, but he was an old skool player who wanted to play for the team he grew up watching, hence he is different. Not really. For example, many South Americans have struggled in the Premiership. Also, Italians tend not to do as well away from Italy than they do in Italy. Therefore, there is a basis for generalisation.
