Fighting like beavers.

Don't know why is this still open. We're not going back. You could see his body language with France last summer after what happened, his head wasn't right. That was also said about both him and Ndombele last season. However, it doesn't make him a bad player, but perhaps a bad investment long term. What he showed against City is that he's capable of really high level performances, match winning stuff right through the centre of the pitch. Technique, dribbling ability, strength, creativity, goal threat, a bit of magic about him. Stylistically, you can see that he'd probably be our best player in terms of technique and linking midfield with attack between the lines here. But as an investment, after what our club found out about him, we decided to close that chapter. Nice player to watch, hope he goes somewhere where he can stay fit and enjoy his football again, even if it's not right at one of the very best clubs, he'll keep trying to get there.
