No but he is important for this system as he is the only midfielder in this squad that can keep the midfield ticking and recycling possession. If he were fit and starting for us over the past few weeks, we probably wouldn't have seen that sloppy backpassing between our centre backs and mids that has led to many dangerous giveaways and sometimes led to conceding cheap goals too.
Bentancur has proven time and again to be a failure when given the responsibility to run the midfield.
As i said, a poorly constructed squad made to rely on a select group of players.
We are dependent on him as he adds balance and football intelligence. He has not delivered in numbers and I don't think he will be one that will fill the statistics tables but damn I would rather him play ten times ahead of idiot Bentancur or lame Rabiot.
Well I'm no expert unlike others here. There are a select few who will tell you that it was one of several a brilliant moves amassing a next level squad building strategy. I also believe there is a coined term used by the select.
It's one of those "If you can't see the forest through the trees" kind of thing
For a fortnight the 24-year-old has worked hard to return as soon as possible, and the newspaper claims he aims to be back for the important second leg against the Portuguese giants in the Champions League.
He’s no Pirlo, who could create assists from our own half, but he’s much more competent than the other CMs we have (except McKennie). He eases a lot of pressure (literally) from our defense. That allows us to move the ball quickly . I’d say Arthur is not only crucial in how our defense works, but also our attack.
