This. People seem to have totally forgotten the way we played first games last season and what he really wanted to do. Shit squad and tons of injuries made him change his approach and he still pretty much delivered under those circumstances.

I think he'll do great at Napoli, which is unfortunate for us. Hopefully he gets to continue growing there and comes back to us in 2 years, when we're also be at a more mature stage.

We practice unpopular culture, that is honour, courage and commitment!
