I think they've judged this one right because of his tiny physical makeup. A lot of what Amad needs to develop will have to come with time and natural progress. I'm not sure it can be hastened just through playing in a physical league, that actually comes with dangers that he'll be a peripheral figure.I’ll be honest, I don’t like this loan. No offence to our resident Dutch, but I think the Dutch league is pretty cack. I’d rather he went to the Bundesliga or even the championship over going to Holland.
It's right to look for senior football where he can consistently and regularly use his current skillset rather than one where we don't know how much of the ball he'll get and more focus is on running power, riding challenges, tracking back etc. It will show his level, build his confidence and give him time.
You're right that eventually he has to adapt to our football so ultimately he has to do that, either with us or out on loan. But I think they've put the horse before the cart in this instance.
