Ricardo Quaresma


Recommended Posts

ricardo_quaresma.jpgRicardo Andrade Quaresma Bernardo (born September 26, 1983, in Lisbon, Portugal) is a Portuguese footballer partly of Gypsy heritage,usually positioned as an attacking winger.

He joined us yesterday from Internazionale fon loan for the remainder of the 2008/09 season.

His style of play can be defined as one with speed, grace,toughness, and often plays a free role on the pitch. He currently playsfor Inter in the Italian Serie A and the Portugal national football team. Initially nicknamed Mustang by former Sporting Clube de Portugal coach Laszlo Bölöni, his nickname in Portuguese is "Cigano" which literally translates into "Gypsy".

He's regularly compared to fellow Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo for the similarities both possess in terms of their speed and dribblingabilities, as well as their style of play. He also specialized the "Trivela"shooting technique, which is his ability to swerve, bend the ballperfectly with the outside of his boot when executing crosses, freekicks and long shots.

He likes the 7 involved in the number though.

17/27 for Portugal.

7 for Porto.

77 for Inter.

Sounds stupid but I hope the club stop him having '7'. They told Robben not too, and he didnt. Sheva was obviously different though. 17 and 27 are taken, so 37 is the next option. We'll see.
