To us it makes sense to play Januzaj as a 10 and di Maria as a lcm, but I think Gaal likes that Adnan is a little less adventurous than di Maria. Pretty much every player is less adventurous than di Maria though. Adnan is clearly a #10. He even plays the lcm like a 10 a lot of the times by being further up the pitch compared to Blind and Rooney. That is why he saw much less of the ball compared to them. He only made 22 passes, where as Rooney and Blind each had 50 passes.I think he made some good combination of play with Shaw on that left hand side but overall wasn't convincing but who was? Don!t get why people are all over Januzaj when you see absolutely disgraceful performances from senior players like Rooney or RVP. DiMaría had a poor game also..
And why the hell don't we switch him with diMaría so they could play in their natural positions ffs?
This arrogant genious on the bench needs to get a grip or has to go..
The problem is that this is probably the only way he can get playing time right now. He can't play as a 10 because Mata is better right now.
