On the other hand Dumfries is the definition of: Hard work beats talent, when talent refuse to work hard. The guy was on amateur level when he was 18 years old. Was told he wasn’t good enough for Sparta, not good enough for Heerenveen, not good enough for PSV and shouldn’t be an option for the Dutch NT. He’s currently for the third year in a row a regular starter for Inter, played a CL-final and named the most important player of the Dutch NT the last couple of months.I don't know what do you mean by talentless? He can pass the ball, that is already more talent than Schelotto. He knows how to tackle, that is talent enough. Granted he doesn't have the ball control of a Zanetti or the technique of a Perišić, but I'm sure he deserves a bit more respect than being called talentless.
Football is not for people with no talent and no understanding for the game. Dumfries has that in spades.
He for sure isn’t the most gifted talent wise, but man, what a persuasiveness this guy has. Immense respect for Dumbfries imo.
