Maniche ´heartbroken´ by omission

Published Add your comment

Midfielder Maniche feels he has been betrayed by Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari after being left out of the Euro 2008 squad.

Maniche, who is on loan at Internazionale from Atletico Madrid, claims he was told by Scolari that he would feature in the squad and was "heartbroken" to find his name had been omitted.

"In my last appearance with national team, he [Scolari] said he would name me because it could be my last European Championship. I am heartbroken," the 30-year-old said to Portuguese broadcaster TVI.
