Naby has had a very good tournament, scoring 1 and getting MOTM in 2 games.
He’s out of todays game due to yellow cards received in the group stages so he could be coming back by the end of the week if they don’t progress today.
By the next Premier League game we will have Naby, Mo and Mane back and highly likely Thiago and Elliott too. Also gives the squad back home a chance to rest up and refresh. Not a bad January after all!
I’m not anti Naby, and I even said that he and Ox would be useful for us and contribute to score or score 10 goals between them this season, but I would not be surprised if he is on the sidelines soon. He always manages to be fit for Guinea, think he never missed a match for them since he’s here. I’m not saying there is something sinister in that but it makes me scratch my head.
Crazy situation with Mané today.
Got knocked out cold by the opposition keeper during a clash of heads. He should have been subbed immediately due to concussion protocols.
Even crazier is that he scored after and then asked to be subbed due to the collision.
