CR7 has done tremendous in terms of the boost he brings Juventus financially and the exposure they gain from his signing. I just feel like it damages the clubs on field performances. I guess we’ll see under new management now they fare but he’ll be 35 next season and it almost seems a bit ridiculous to continue to rely so heavily on him.
With regards to Dybala, he deserves a lot of criticism I don’t dispute that but I also feel like the team have changed shape and unfortunately he’s suffered from it. When deployed as a second striker (in the same mould as Griezmann) he’s an elite player but he’s often been asked to perform unfamiliar roles unfortunately for him. His talent doesn’t seem to extend that far that he has the versatility to adjust to numerous roles.
On another note… nobody seems to be talking too heavily about the incredible job Gasperini has done at Atalanta. Taking them to 3rd place is an unbelievable achievement. He’s done this having sold a host of the clubs too young players over the course of his tenure.
Inter were stupid to ever sack him. They never gave him a chance. He had a similarly bad start at Atalanta and he’s absolute thrived given some time.
