Apparently he wants too much.

I wonder if he is waiting for January to sign with Beckham's new team in Miami? Great weather, would make big money.

Another mistake that the management made was letting go of Abate last summer.

Abate wouldn't have stayed anyway since Gazidis is a pedo

Would've done a better job than Conti at right back. Can play centre-back and has tons of experience. Now? We're left with inexperienced players and it really shows. We're lacking Abate's presence in the locker room and during training before match day.
Bump

One month later and it's even more true

I thought not selling Kessie and Suso was the biggest mistake last window, but letting him go ranks alongside.

Letting him go was not a mistake, he could barely play anymore and no one's picked him up. Stop with the knee-jerk nonsense.

Sure. 8 wins and 1 draw in his last 9 starts for Milan (possibly unmatched by anyone else in modern Milan). Accomplished performances as a right-back and as a center-back in his last 6 months with Milan.

He was a great squad player to have for the club and the only reason we let him go was corporate strategy. I didn't particularly care at that time, but in hindsight it was a stupid move.

yes, but they probably won't because of pride

we need leaders and a consistent right back. he'd undoubtedly improve our squad but I don't see us bringing him back

Hindsight is always hindsight. The issues we're seeing now are hopefully short term, and considering our need to cut wages, having the RB's would be unnecessary.

I saw some reports during the summer regarding sale of Conti and thought that was the dumbest shit ever, again hindsight. But had we sold him it would have made sense to keep Abate.

Hiring Giampaolo was the biggest mistake of them all.
Not getting a proper Bakayoko/Biglia replacement was also a far bigger mistake than not selling Kessie.
Actually, selling Kessie and replacing him with yet another lightweight pseudo-midfielder, like Praet, would've been yet another mistake.

As for Abate, we need him now more than we needed him last season(at RB).
We used to have a part-time CB at LB and a very attack-minded RB, but it's been the reverse this season with Theo.
Now is the time for a RB/RCB like Abate.

Hiring Giampaolo without the right environment for him was a mistake. Exactly the same mistake Inter did when hiring Gasperini. These guys are excellent managers in very specific environments. If you take that away, they'll flounder.

I wasn't even thinking of the fact that we are currently playing pretty much a 3-man defence with an RB/RCB hybrid. Makes the Abate decision look even more stupid.
