He is an example of how world-class players change the whole team, I think ETH learned a very valuable lesson here.
It's crazy to think Real Madrid had prime Ronaldo, Casemiro, and Modric, and Barcelona had prime Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, and Busquets.
IMO, he is the only world-class player we have. Many people, including managers, like to speak about philosophy and play style. But in the end, players are real assets.
Every manager tries to buy players that fit into their system or players they know, and when the system fails you, then you are left with system players. That's how we spent nearly 1.3B USD.
