Untitled[edit]

Why is there no details about the start of his 2004 season with Santos in Career Stats at the bottom of the page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 139.222.245.91 (talk) 22:29, 12 May 2009 (UTC)


I have removed the following, as it is pretty POV:

A major controversy is arising from his choice of his father as his representative. Both in Santos and in FC Porto, his father was hurting his son's game by publishing critical and controversial statements against the clubs and managers where Diego plays.

If sources can be found to back it up, please feel free to add the content again. Poulsen 11:45, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

3 international goals?[edit]

I just watched the friendly match between England and Brazil on Friday, June 1st 2007. Diego scored in stoppage time to equalize and the final result turned out to be a draw. As the commentators repeated over and over, it was Diego's first international goal. I repeat: his very first goal for Brazil. So please, who ever wrote that he scored 3 goals for his national team has to change it. We want a clean Wikpedia. No more false information. Thanks for understanding.Shady1969.119.62.37 06:44, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

This sort of issue goes on al the time. One day if you are bored, look through various language pages of any footballer - Diego for example, has scored anywhere from 1 to 6 goals in anything from 13 to 33 appearances depending which language you choose. Don't bet your house on any information found in Wikipedia, at least until they introduce verification methods for information.--ClubOranje (talk) 11:29, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

He is not Kaka's brother that needs to be removed. Kaka's brother is called Digao not Diego and also plays for AC milan. He is younger than kaka and is taller so there is no way you can confuse him with Diego who is quite short and an attacker. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.194.11.210 (talk) 17:12, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Should his on the pitch nasty temperament be included? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.226.164.193 (talk) 04:17, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Portsmouth FC???[edit]

I know my football, and I do not remember Portsmouth agreeing a fee for Diego on 7th May 2009. This needs to be removed. Unless, of course, it can be sourced reliably. --Just-an-Ipswich-fan (talk) 19:37, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Juventus[edit]

Seems he's a Juve player, now!

if this is to be believed:

Deem yourselves lucky, Juve fans. This little chap is the single most creative footballer I have ever seen, Platini, Laudrup & Baggio all in one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.168.250.119 (talk) 22:38, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Second nationality[edit]

Does Diego holds Portuguese nationality? Matthew_hk tc 02:15, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Transfer to Wolfsburg from Juventus[edit]

Why did Diego move back to Germany within just a year of his transfer to Juve ? Was his stint, a failure at Juve and what is the claim about being the 'record transfer' to Wolfsburg? Not much info on that. Some clarification is needed.

Santos[edit]

Santos section requires expansion because there is no info on what that great team did, in brazil and libertadores — Preceding unsigned comment added by Msalway (talkcontribs) 02:54, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
