Totally get this (media were relentless) but when he puts it on his teammates, that is what kills the most.The media played a massive part. Dude was getting shredded rightly or wrongly, it was all over the socials. Kid with a fragile ego wouldn't know how to handle it at all, especially away from home. If he was allowed to lie low and not have every move scrutinized it may have worked out different, who knows.
As it turns out he fell to pieces when the heat came, for his sake I hope he can sort that out but it's none of this clubs concern anymore.
Should've not made it about himself and put in the effort to prove the doubters wrong. He didn't and ultimately it made his teammates take on more pressure. That's just being a dickhead. We were happy to defend the bloke and give him another shot in 2022 but he goes and avoids the group like we are strangers to him?
He screwed us of a pick 1. * him.
