Would have liked to see him in a free role behind a good striker with a half-decent midfield behind him - even a year or two ago he still had real star quality, would have been interesting to see what he could have done.
Say what you like about Sam etc. But he knew he had to drop Rooney deep to babysit the midfield. He did a very average job, but just having someone ROUGHLY creative in profile for CM did make a big difference. Although it came with plenty of problems too (No legs, no vertical dribble, poor short passing in dangerous areas, not good enough but still a super star level ball magnet which pulled touches away from the already touch-shy Sigurdsson).
Anyway, speaks volumes that we’re literally just looking to jettison him and not getting any kind of fee for him.
Brands must have looked at the contracts sheet and fainted.
Good luck in America Wayne lerd, keep it in your kecks tho.
