My opinion to, although it wasn't noticeable until he played for City in the PL. You'd be amazed at the amount of people that thought that City had bought a gem of a player last summer lol!
But yeah, Maicon's fallen a LONG way from the player who was considered one of the best defenders in the world just a few seasons ago. His game really has just plummeted though in a very short space of time. He'll be do a job for a top half Serie A team like Roma though.
