If footballers were flowering plants, Diego Forlán would be a late bloomer. But he’d be a variety which adapted to various climes, if not always easily. The former Uruguay, Manchester United and Mumbai City midfielder — who was in Mumbai recently — is therefore a case study for professionals in sports or the corporate world. The ability to adapt, after all, is crucial for success in any field. A magnetic figure on the pitch with his blond mane, blue eyes and powerful long rangers, Forlan took time to get his career going due to a combination of factors. But he finished as a modern great. Forlán was named the outstanding player of the 2010 World Cup and was its joint top scorer. Uruguay reached the semifinals of the tournament.
