Um, anyone know why Saelemaekers is on the bench?


I missed the game against Verona when Castillejo apparently turned into Lionel Messi, so maybe that’s why.


Alexis is clearly a better player but strangely Samu has more goal/assist ratio compare to him.


In training?


Extending Zlatan’s contract is not an option.
He’s done.
The reason why Kessie and now Theo and Bennacer are requesting a significant price increase is probably because they see management is able to pay premium for a 40 year old player.


Yeah “Ibra’s done”… Been hearing that for the past 5 years.


I guess in order to be sure he’ll be the oldest scorer in Seria A, Ibra score a goal and an own goal today. 🙂
