And then Mou coming out in the rueda de prensa afterwards saying that "at the moment, Adán is better than Iker." Give me a break. I'm not one to really push for DT turnover, but at this rate, Mou needs to go before we pick up for the new year - CL aspirations or no. He's not in line with what the club stands for (awaiting pokes from Shah here...
) and who in their right mind is going to bench a two-time Euro, one WC winner and captain who commands the team and the defense?
I can understand it from Mou's perspective; no one is bigger than the team. Although that should apply to the manager as well...
I can understand RM's perspective. There are certain aspects of the club that supersede whomever manages it - traditions, footballing identity, certain players, etc.
I do think Mou got it wrong by running against the grain here.Edited by El Argentino - 12/23/12 at 4:48pm
