In my travels around the Internet I bump into some strange comments, such as those from grimes Ria who uses one player, Nabil Bentaleb, as proof to determine that Schalke 04 coach Markus Weinzierl is a better coach than Mauricio Pochettino.
Perhaps there is a lack of understanding that Bentaleb, while starting well, had a bad attitude, was at loggerheads with the club over the inflated wages he wanted and asked to leave when he found he wasn't an automatic first choice.
He was loaned to Schalke with a view to buying and started very poorly, before picking up and now regressing again. Sadly the poster is yet another who believes a player has to be given game time to be given a chance, something Bentaleb actually was given. You have to produce on the training ground, that is where a team is selected, prove yourself there and you'll play, don't and you won't, simple.
Quite how they determine Pochettino is arrogant and unfair, another of their comments, is unclear and quite frankly, unfathomable. he seems quite the opposite. It rather shows how a hatred of someone can cloud judgement and forget facts that don't support a theory.
