We NEED defenders for crying out loud.
We are an attacking team that does not score at a rate that we should.
Of course we need defenders, but we also need more cutting edge on the other end as well given the way we play. If we scored all of these missed chances, or even half of them we'd be much better off. It's not just Kun, but for all of his quality, he has had his fair share of muffed chances, and while he creates, he is not as comfortable/natural/pacey running with the ball from deep to create. He often gets caught now when he drops deeper to receive the ball. He creates better when in the final third, as we saw in a few games, and it is sad to say all of this, but Pep can also let him go to whatever club he wants, for the most part (hopefully not Chelsea or Utd).
How this will all pan out is a true mystery. Could still see Kun actually staying and fighting for his place with Sanchez, Jesus, Sterling and Sane next season or he's gone to wherever he wants if we add a big name forward/winger who can score.
I think Kun is amazing, but I see why Pep questions his value with the way we play. He's doing more than he has, and is without question a club and PL legend...yet, I can see the need for change.
Sanchez works his arse off and maybe it's just a personality thing between Kun vs Alexis and Pep. Kun and Pep may not be meshing and sometimes that's enough if you think both players are close to the same level.
We shall see.
