The Europa league tier marketplace is probably the toughest to work in imo.
You canít get the best Europa players as they believe theyíre CL level. The lower end CL believe theyíre still CL level and would sooner move to a club guaranteed to qualify for the comp even if they do fuck all whilst in it. Then the Europa players we can attract simply have us treading water whilst costing a shade less than a CL player.
Then thereís the mercenary batch that will happily play for anyone with some cash to burn, but letís not go there as we all know where that leads.
Tough job for Brands imo.
