If you talking about Dani from Sporting that played a few years in Ajax, than he was more like King of the passerelle.
The guy is now a TV sports comentator, but he had a huge talent (a great left foot) if he had stayed a true profesional in his football career he could have been one of the best players of his time, not a Ronaldo (who is?) , but almost a Futre, but the guy was more night live and fashion, collecting girlfriends (fuck I would have done the same), I remember watching some wild scenes of the guy and other players of his generation in the night life in Lisbon. Actually I never knew him (only his grandfather), but he's a far very far relative of mine, both parts of our families are from the same town in the North of Portugal.
I have these theory that if you came from a wealthy family like Dani did (upper midle class, both parents were highschool teatchers, in the days that the profession mean you were upper midle class), no matter how talent you have, you never get to be a good player, to be that, you must come from the slums or near that, reality proves this point
