Miti di Finlandia
Mito a metà accanto a mito assoluto. Zeddy Saileti, re di Rovaniemi, e Jari Litmanen, miglior giocatore finlandese della storia. Il sito Nordic Football ricorda così la loro stagione:
"Jari Litmanen’s second Veikkausliiga season in a row got off to a flying start with a 4-1 victory over Zeddy Saileti’s RoPS. The two veterans have had massively contrasting careers, but both are legends at their clubs. Saileti ended the season as caretaker manager of RoPS after first Valeri Bondarenko and then Mika Lumijärvi were sacked in a disastrous season for the Rovaniemi side, while Litmanen was left to contemplate his options as Lahti narrowly lost their Europa League tie against Club Brugge, and Finland failed to qualify for the World Cup in South Africa. Saileti is now 40 years old, and he played his last game against KuPS on the final day of the season, while Litmanen is 38 and has come to no firm conclusions about what he will do next year".
