He’s done absolutely nothing in his career to suggest he’s a better central midfielder than Can, Henderson or Wijnaldum. I think Lallana and Milner are better central midfielders than him too. And the Keita deal was wrapped up before he went there so he knew he’d be coming too.
I can understand him not wanting to be here, I can understand his Klopplove and he’s a fan but I can’t understand why he made out he went there to be a midfielder. The one thing he has going for him is that on paper he can play 5 or 6 positions and that kind of player should add value to a squad but to think he’d get in a midfield ahead of any of those guys is just ridiculous.
