10 years of FIF
Success in club football comes down to a number of factors and singling out ETH when the club wasn’t being run like a football club with a SD but a business cannot culminate in him being considered a fraudI love how united fans try to find every possible excuse for him, even tho he has not improved the team one bit. Fucking Ole played the same with worse players, not to mention Mourinho.
Antony might’ve been a mistake but he was sensational under him at Ajax- here perhaps he failed in terms of due diligence on his background but this could happen anywhere and under anyone
I thought Casemiro acquisition was bizarre but FDJ was 1st option and rarely does settling for alternatives pan out
The Sancho fiasco is not on him either as he didn’t buy him and I wouldn’t have either since rumors of his attitude and laziness were known even before he left for Bundesliga
And in fairness he’s been there 12 months, culture change is difficult- more so at a bloated club with a myopic fan base. My prediction upon his hiring was that he’d be fired <2 yrs because club/fans will never have patience to allow ETH to run the club the way he wants. Look at the mess that Ajax is now after he left, it’s a disaster
He’s not a fraud but I do think he made a big mistake taking the job, Van Gaal warned him. Lesson learned
