He doesn't want the ball. That makes him a worse than a bad player. Watch him. He never demands the ball. He never makes angles to receive the ball. He could win the National Hide and Seek Championship during a game. If the ball gets passed to him he looks terrified and he immediately hits the shortest pass possible to another player who usually doesn't want it either. We are currently blessed with a lot of spineless players and he's the Chief Invertebrate.
He wasn't always like this.
Barry, even though his legs had gone, always took the ball and got stick if he got caught or hit a wayward pass. He would just shrug it off and go again. He spent three seasons trying to start moves from the back because no one else had the bottle. It's called taking responsibility. Schneiderlin's the polar opposite. A footballer who doesn't want the ball. Nyarko's ghost.
