Aki Riihilahti is an intelligent and gifted footballer. He is currently in England playing for the First Division side, Crystal Palace. While they are still First Division, I consider Aki to be a little unlucky for two reasons
* His home country Finland never qualified for the World Cup
* His current club are struggling in the middle of the first division
I really hope he gets a chance to play in the premiership and maybe even Europe.
I came across his virtual self when I first played Championship Manager on PC. Coincidentally, he likes to play CM too 🙂 as is evident from this blog.
I consider his writings to be thoughtful, funny and definitely a big find. He is one of the few footballers to blog honest and spontaneously. There might be others out there but this is the first one I found, so I’m pretty surprised.
