Yeah, sounds ridiculous, I know) they are both better players, by quite some margin. But in double pivot, without Mandzu (e.g. both DC and Benta are playing) and with Bonbon on the field we need protection in midfield.
If Can is able to do only simple things with the ball and impose his physicality, he might work better than current Miralem. We are too damn static now, Pjanic and Bonbon are overlapping in terms of distribution. DC and Berna can compensate for the lack of movement without Blaise and creativity without Pjanic.
