Pogba's biggest fan
- Dec 6, 2015
Let's go into these soundbites. He inherited a squad where around 10 squad /match day players left. He also had holes in the existing team, ie no striker, no real back up striker, no right winger, a midfield duo commonly trashed each time they started together and an entire back 5 incabable of playing a high line with attacking interchanges bar Shaw (and Varane, but he's made of glass).That's a moot point, though. He could buy 50 players with 400m to spend, and make the squad plus the reserve all his "players", but he chose not to.
The 400m line is thrown around like it's a huge sum of money but it's not going to fix those holes in today's market. A top striker is more than 100m alone. So is an absolute top single midfielder.
The Antony signing is a royal feck up but guess what, he's not 400m.
Back to your quote, I don't see how its a moot point because all I said is it's not "his squad". He's obligated to play so many players he inherited, not least since most of his signings have often been injured or unavailable.
