    He preferred to choose "The Project". In other words, he preferred to choose the losing side, and this decision caused his whole professional mentality to be questioned.

    Didnt think he was as good last night as made out.

    Evades the press well and kept ball at times but was running game or doing anything exceptional with it.

    Closer to an Arthur performance than a prime Xavi one.

    He threw his club career away for the blood money of the Nepalese people.



    Ok, it is not that drastic. But I just wanted to get that headline out there.

    I also don't get that Verratti praise.

    He was always a good player, but imo, overrated by our fans because he plays "our style of football".
    The same as how Arthur was insanely overrated in the early years because he looked like someone who could play in a Pep's team.

    About Verratti on a club level, he is extremely hot and cold.
    I haven't see him string two good CL games in a row.
    He is usually awesome in one, and a ghost in the next one.
    Or a ghost in the first and very good in the 2nd one.

    And between those hot and cold (from GOAT to WOAT) performances, he is often injured in key months of every season.

    A nice player, but imo nowhere near as good as rated here.

    Verratti's strengths make him a great player in a 3-man midfield, but he has enormous weaknesses, namely in offense. With PSG not having very creative midfielders, responsibility falls on him to play all 3 parts of a midfield: defence-possession-offense. Usually the task is split with each 3-man midfielder having at most two of those areas covered to utilize a player's true strengths.

    Arthur only had possession, which means he needed a defensive and offensive guy around him. Possession is the worst strength to have alone. Casemiro has defence as only strength, but was paired with Kroos and Modric handling the other parts. Both Xavi and Iniesta had possession + offense.

    Verratti is the closest we can get to prime Busi, being good in defence and great in possession. But they need to be backed up with more creative players.

    He's highly rated everywhere.

    Good thing he won the Euros, his list of big trophies for such a good player is otherwise quite underwhelming.

    Still don't know why he wasted his peak for PSG.

    Every big club would love him.

    Won't be remembered the way a player of his calibre should. Thanks to throwing the years away in France.

    I don't know why he decided to stay at clown club PSG...such a great player, career thrown away
    “I would love to have played at this club. I am envious of how well Guardiola's men can play. They are like a group of kids who play football in the street without rules. That is the best football, the most authentic, unfettered by tactics or schemes. Guardiola’s philosophy is helping to change the mindset of many tacticians and that is priceless.” Marco Van Basten

    Iirc Marco has the "party boy" nonchalant personality and isn't that professional. Add constant injuries to that.

    He just enjoys the easy lifestyle and big fat paycheck Qatar hands him.

    This cat could be all time great midfielder if he leaves France and joins Barca/RM/City...

    Never seen any midfielder can tackle like him. Like Nesta in midfield
