Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe has told The Sun that new signing, Jack Wilshere is a world class player. He must be talking out of his backside because Wilshere is nowhere near world class, Andre Pirlo he isn't, George Best he isn't Gazza he isn't. These were world class players not an average Premier League performer, the is, if you'll forgive the pun, a world of difference.
That comes after news that Yaya Toure was left out of the Manchester City UEFA Champions League squad by new boss Pep Guardiola.
A similar ruthlessness was shown by Mauricio Pochettino towards players he didn't want at the club. If a player is upsetting the boat or wants to leave he goes and trains with the development Squad. Emmanuel Adebayor was abandoned and proved what we all knew, that he was only at Spurs for the money.
Winners are ruthless.
