Thanks for the update btwPellistri chose to go to Alaves, the club didn't force him to go there over the other interested teams. But people shouldn't jump to conclusions just yet because this might end up being a good loan for him. Pellistri showed more in the last 5 minutes than the rest of the Alaves players in attack did in the last 30 minutes, so hopefully that will put him into contention to start the next game.
1) its early daysYou have to question the idea of letting players pick their loan destinations. Januzaj to Dortmund another questionable one.
No doubt he would have gotten way more minutes so far in the Belgian league albeit at a lower level. Not a wasted loan just yet as he could still turn it around but early signs aren't great.
1. I literally mentioned it's early and he can still turn it around1) its early days
2) we can and do advise them which clubs we think are best fits
3) players aren't slaves to be forced where we want them
