I do believe he intenden for Jesse to show his worth, to ultimately be able to bolster our summer war chest and free up wages.You're making my point really. Ole could have stopped the deal but didn't because like I said, it was the logical concession. However he clearly didn't not intend this outcome.
As you said, West Ham were not seen as a competitor but the coming of Lingard was the factor that propelled them to that point. Had Ole foreseen this, he won't have let him go there.
Therefore Ole doesn't get credit for making a "brilliant decision" when he never intended these outcomes.
It has worked out brilliantly.
Credit to Ole and Jesse. Win-Win
