He loves Davies ( who put in a few bad ones towards the end of the season) and has no time for Ross ,there must be something for Ross to learn from that .As a lifelong Blue of course it would hurt if one of our own leaves but Ross has not upped his game and Ronald is not the man to tolerate that .I think we have a great manager now even knowing one day he will be off ,I keep hoping that "once Everton has touched you " will be enough ,sadly then I wake up and smell the coffee .He is on a mission and Ross Barkley is not the one to stand in his way .
Davies has exactly what Ross doesn't. Passion, that X-factor and the determination on the field that is infectious and pushes others. And I think that is why Barkley will never fulfill his potential. While Davies doesn't have Barkley's skills, he has the edge given his determination. He's a fighter.
But yeah, he did fade towards the end of the season, but then they all did. Am most excited about Davies out of all our players though. He looks the real deal. And that is why Koeman rates Davies and not Barkley imo.
I am assuming Klaassen will replace Davies in the team which I am sad about, but with Seamus out, I wonder how Davies would do as a wing back with a 3 at the back formation from time to time? He certainly has the speed and tacking to do well in the role, plus he has an end product.
