Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
But he doesnt cut the mustard in europe
as a league player, id struggle to find a better player, and his record speaks for itself.
But as a champions league player, hes consistently underpreformed when needed, even though he was consistently surrounded by superb talent alot of the time . Ronaldo has his excuse for not winning a CL. Not to mention other accolades hes earned elsewhere
But the point still stands, when needed the man fails to deliver, consistently. Even vs Juve last season he got his ass kicked in the league games that decided the season. Useless vs Barca, useless when Barca needed him vs inter. Even last weekend in the top of the la liga game he got sent off
Something switches off with Ibra when needed. You coulda argue he is indeed just a bully of weaker teams or thrives when theres a lack of pressure. That diminishes him as a striker in my eyes.
It kinda reminds me of Didier back in his old days. Absolutely immense and beast of a striker, but he had a habit of getting sent off in huge champions league games for some reason. When he finally sorted out that problem, boom, won the title.
Not too late for Ibra to finally fix that final flaw in his armour
