You're right, I meant in his third season.He's been here for 2 years.
Doesn't mean ETH handled it the right way either to be fair.
If Sancho is such a nightmare for Eric to motivate and he isn't trying in training you'd assume that that's not a very recent development. Which then begs the question why wasn't he sold in the transfer window that just closed a few weeks ago?
I'd say its because no-one would take him on those wages and ETH seemed to try the carrot last year so maybe he thought there'd be some improvement now.
Let's be fair, if he sold all our underperforming players, we'd have lost half the squad in one window. Most of the squad we had when he arrived would qualify as deadwood for a serious team
