That's what Figo is saying to Real Madrid's critics. Ever since the signing of marquee player David Beckham, alot of speculations and rumors arose that Figo might leave Real. This stemmed because of the fact that Figo plows the right flank and so does David. Since both of them are superstars and unquestionably first team players, it's now a question on who's playing the right wing and who'll move to another position. I think Real was intelligent enough to foresee this problem. That's why they hired Carlos Queiroz, who coached Beckham as assistant to Alex Ferguson at United and Figo as skipper of the Portuguese youth side. Now they have a man that both players respect and can easily take orders from. He should know better where David or Figo can play his best football.

Personally, I think Figo is the more versatile player and can easily adapt playing the left wing. David should assume the right wing where his pinpoint crosses will be vital to Real's campaign next season. And then there's Raul, Ronaldo, Zidane, Roberto Carlos, et al. What an all-star cast !

Think my wife's gonna be jealous again when La Liga opens soon. Because I know I'll be superglued to our TV set when the referee blows the starting whistle. Bwahahahaha!

This is going to be fun. Hehe!
