I have no doubt Iheanacho will be told in no uncertain terms the team is more important than individuals. How often do you see the front three at Barca and Bayern lay it on a plate for a tap in for someone else.
Joe has found out today the team plays in a certain way. You either adapt to it or you won't be in it
Said as much at the time to my son and then the camera cut to Pep basically indicating the same......he should have passed.
There's a lot out of today I liked, not least that you could see a managers signature on the style that the team were trying to play. I loved the discipline of the full backs tucking inside and automatically wheeling into cover the CB's coming out of defense with the ball.
It really does look like s system that will work when we have personnel that are willing and capable to play it.
If big personalities in the team cannot adapt they will be gone and there will be changes and new heroes.
I had wondered how Pep would do in England but I am optimistic that he will be successful. Now to safely negotiate the Steau tie.
