Exactly, that's what I have been hearing too. They called him the laptop manager wanting the players to adapt his style of training/playing although the players where not good enough to do that. That is fine when you are the manager of a top 10 team in the world but when you manage a team in the second division in the Netherlands where I call the first division the Micky Mouse League so you have an idea how good or let we say how bad the League is. A good manager understands that he has to adapt to the level and capability of his players and not try to manage them like they are Firmino and Mané if they are not.From what I was told from fans of the club, he tried to instill his way ignoring the advice of others and abit too full of himself. It depends on where you hear or read the stories from, but mine was from someone local (working for me in Holland) who gave me the low down on how he's being perceived in the club and around it. Full of himself is what they mentioned and I am never a fan of someone like that - we had one.
It was clear he was too arrogant to change his ways and was rightfully fired. He might be a good assistant but somehow he reminds me of Brenda Rodgers and I don't like that one bit. When noting strange happens and Steve Gerard keeps developing himself as a manager I go for him.
