Sounds right re Rafa wanting him to change style…
I just would be concerned that particularly when DCL gets back we’ll need a better quality of delivery than Godfrey offers.
TBF that would be true whoever is up front.
That said, Digne has looked suspect pace wise - against the real speed merchants like Salah. He also got absolutely slaughtered for pace and strength by Traore a season or so back.
And Godfrey set a useful battling tone on Monday...
Reports now suggest disagreements between him and RB in training - about tactics…
I know he (Digne) has been far from his best recently, but I would be disappointed if this was the end.
He’s put out a very straight batted statement on social media which doesn’t mention any of that.
Also remember a few descriptions of Rafa’s ruthless approach when he hasn’t got on with players in past clubs.
I’d love Digne to get back to the way he was - gave proper balance to the back four. Always came across as mature, considered and professional. I guess he will have his own view of what’s best tactically having played for the clubs and managers with which/whom he’s been involved.
Will be fascinating to see how things develop not just with Digne but across the club structures.
January could be very informative…
