We should be adding players not using them for deals, I keep hearing that Benayoun or Kalou are being used to lure Modric. It’s not just an absurd idea but a desperate measure that could shows our desperation. Let’s not make the current players feel insecure or unsafe – If we want to add, the we should do so outright.
We do not have currently have depth, and with these players being mentioned it would be like to cause further harm – hopefully it’s just empty rumours, all are needed in our squad.
No offence to AVB but I thought it was a mistake to start Kalou ahead of Drogba against Stoke, but Drogba is an integral part of the team. On the days Drog fails to shine then kalou comes to our rescue.
Now that Benayoun is back fit it doesn’t make sense to let him go; his friendship on and off the pitch can be the key to Torres’ game. He is a good player with experience, creativity, drive, and the right attitude.
We can’t lose kalou and Benayoun, there are both going to key to success this season.
