Big difference between a 15yr career - max at top - that could end in every training session and a 40 year career Heimy......
I think that’s the point K78 is getting at
Yes but lets say he was on £50k a week with us for 5 years, obviously very very nice money but its only for 5 years and he is now the forgotten man, certainly not the man many managers think of when looking for singings so probably he will now need to take a huge drop in wages to get any kind of contract, probably down to £5-10k per week at some lower league team and then he needs to really start grafting to make a name for himself again. On the other hand he could have left a few years ago and gone for perhaps £30k per year but to a fairly good club, play regularly, enjoy his job and then step on.
I just find the Markovich position very negative, its extremely short term thinking and screams of a lack of integrity and/or confidence, neither will be very positive traits when looking for a new employer.
Basically unless he now has a fantastic half season with Fulham, which I very much doubt, then his career is fu**ed at 24.
