Plays with his head down. Not sure what happened with the scouting on this one.
Congratulations to Benfica on this one.
Another one of the monumental f**k ups of the pre Klopp era. Add this waste of a contract to the likes of Balotelli, Borini, Lambert, Moreno, Migs, Downing, Benteke, Adam and whoever else.
The worst part of it is, up until Klopp came in, we were binning off the likes of Pepe, Agger, Kuyt, Maxi, Gerrard etc, as well as having Suarez and Sterling sold.
Pathetic shambles this club was in regarding transfers under FSG until Klopp arrived. Suarez, Coutinho and Sturridge to an extent are the only ones to have really added top quality to the team. Bobby too but I gather that was a compromise for BR to get his wish of Benteke, even then he played him completely out of position.
You look at how the club operated then, to how it does now and it’s an extraordinary turnaround.
