    Can someone show this troll a video of Dalbert and what it means to have no work ethic? But hey Dalbert doesn't have quality but it still would be hard to show it if you're always 55 steps behind.

    He’s talking about wingers and you are talking about fullbacks.

    Is reading comprehension really that difficult to this generation?

    No need to cry over Keita Balde... he was far from what he was supposed to be and we cannot blame Spalletti for his lack of playing time. He was absolutely garbage through the season in those minutes he played.

    What? Keita was barely given any chances and the chances he did have were in the wrong role if not the wrong position completely to begin with.

    At his price of course we shouldn't redeem him but calling him garbage is completely unfounded.

    Sorry but that's not good enough for me to excuse his garbage performances in Inter. I already said that he was lacking playing time like the others for example Politano or Perisic, but on another note he wasn't good enough to take them out of line-up.

    I have kept saying that Perisic is playing only because his competition is terrible. On another note, Politano's end product has let him down big time, otherwise he would have been great player, but even with his bad finishing he was still able to maintain a role as the most active player (offensively) in our team, me thinks.

    How can you perform well when you're not even playing in your preferred position?

    Which is his preferred position? And since you asked, of course you can perform well out of your preferred position if you have attribute of being all-round player.

    If Monaco cut his price in third, then sure why the fuck not. But spending 20+mil on this dude is a waste.

    Would you pick him over Mane?

    Keita came in for Ismaïla Sarr, not Mané.

    Moved to former players since I think the chances we sign him are pretty slim and he’s technically a Monaco player

    Mane plays on Keita's preferred left side, so if the coach were to play him he'd have to play Mane elsewhere or drop Mane all together which ain't happening. Ideally they would change the formation to find places for both players. However I like Keita as an impact sub.

    Keita did play as striker or second striker for us this year. He can obviously play there but Senegal coach probably don't rate him much.

    He was in the stands yesterday, could this mean he is a cheaper option if the Dybala or Sanchez deal collapse? Wouldn't mind him as a ss next to Lukaku.

    Pastorello said the P&P Sport Management boys were having a celebration dinner after the game (Lukaku, Candreva, Asamoah, Pastorello + his wife). No mention of Keita but considering he's also a client of Pastorello not to mention a very recent former player who happens to be in town, I expect he went along too.

    Picture Spalletti with Dreadlocks and you have our coach. He has his players he always plays and all the other who have to adapt either on the bench or playing out of position. Baldé Keita never played as a SS or a striker with Senegal, always on the wing and even though he delivers he has never been the coach favourite.

    I though Senegal played 433, where would Keita play if not Mane's position? Anyway, coach's job is to get results first and foremost, if he feels Keita doesn't guarantee this, tough luck for Keita.

    Senegal

    Senegal played 433 and also 442 flat with Mané and Sarr as wingers so Baldé could've easily been SS next to Niang. But the coach has his personal favourites and never really liked Keita.
