He simply wasn't. Lack of concentration at its best.
Always looks like he's so keen to be the middle of the 3 cbs. I've noticed this a few times with him. Here he almost looks like he's rushing back to be the middle CB.
Girouds goal he let's giroud peel off him so he can hold his position.
Even back to arnautovic goal last season at bologna, he won't leave the middle to pick him up.

I wonder if it's instruction, or maybe he doesn't want to be on the flank, or what it is. But since inzaghi has come in de vrij has went into the shitter, after being a league mvp with conte.

High defensive line. They simply can't support it.
That's the reason for our disjointed play and the huge gaps in midfield / defence.

But getting owned by the milan attack (Giroud in particular) is down to incompetence, poor reading of the situation and all round bad defending. So much ball watching going on with this guy, he's reactions are so bad. He's done at this level.

From best Serie A defender to Acerbi's backup, his decline is fucking unbelievable. And he doesn't even have any major injury. He's only 30 so age is not an excuse either.

I remember he was at least decent when he played in Spaletti's back 4 (his first season here), although it wasn't as good as Conte's back 3. Right now, his performance is just unacceptable.

He's more mentally done than anything, I think. Just a never ending landslide of shit performances, one after the other. What a shitshow.

His last season should have been the Scudetto win with Conte.

He is two seasons past his use by date and will go on a free transfer at the end of the season.

We started defending properly as a team and suddenly we have De Vrij pocketing lewandowskis of the world. :lol:

This was like back to Conte era which made De Vrij world class.
