Im trying to say as talented as he may be and he is a good young player, we already have people here comparing him to Timo Werner for some odd reason when it has nothing to do with that.Minus the injuries? He missed 12-18 months with a broken ankle.
That's why he's on loan, he needs to play football. We've seen with Chamberlain and Gomez (and even Ings) that it's tough to return to your previous level straight away after such an injury, probably even more so for a kid as young as Brewster. Gomez moved like Hyypia when he returned!
I'm not saying Brewster is nailed on to make it here, he was never on the level of Owen or Fowler in the youth, but he is worth hanging on to for a while longer. He doesn't just score goals, he works very hard and likes to get stuck in, and seems to have a very determined mindset. There's a lot to work with there.
Im know he has been injured and yes he should get game time and development, but again he is 20 years old. This is not a case of lets just keep developing and sending the kid out on loan and one day he will be ok. Either he is good enough to at some point be a part of the plan, or he is being sized up for sale. Thats reality. And until Jurgen himself selects the kid regularly in the squad, thats what it is. Im sure he will succeed in his career as a footballer, being a top scorer for some team, but chances are it won't be with us.
