Hate?? Meh. I went over the top by stating he is “garbage”... but it’s frustrating the way he is talked about on these forums. He hardly contributes any balls that split the lines. He has marginal passing range. He contributes next to nothing in the final third. He’s below average without the ball. Sure, the guy looks smooth, but he’ll have a whopper of a play every other game where he turns the ball over in a dreadful position.
Let me ask you this. Over the last two seasons, why have we been so dreadful against teams who have a decently organized press? has there been a top 15 team in world football that has been more impotent against a solid press than Juventus Football Club? If we played Leeds 50 times, I’m not sure we’d having a winning record. Does Bentancur not shoulder a majority of the midfield blame for this ineptitude?
