I'm not trying to say Besic should be starting. I'm saying I'd much rather have Besic over Schneiderlin. Why would you want someone who dissapeared for 80% of the season in the team?
Cos you know that when Schneiderlin does play near his best, he's comfortably better than anything Besic has ever produced in his career.
The new manager maybe thinks he can get a lot out of Schneiderlin in his tactical setup.
We all agree about him going missing and not having a great attitude at times, but he's a much better player than Besic.
