Well, it's more than just "he is in the squad"/"he has a squad number".
I feel like people havent' seen koemans interview where he specifically states niasse is now in his thinking and that you have to give people chances.
Because that was a pretty significant statement in regard to this discussion.
Yes but logic would suggest that he's still behind everyone that he put in the EL squad.
Which wouldn't be a ringing endorsement. If there'd been some sort of epiphany then he'd have picked him as an option for that too, I'd have thought.
Id guess it's just to differentiate between last season when he was solely with the u23 squad.
