If we are sticking with Rafa,
he is sticking with his style and we need to sell, wouldnt it make sense to cash in? He isnt going to be happy with the style and we wont be getting the best from him.
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…
