That’s ok if he was a mid ranged salary player, but he’d be our highest paid player but hasn’t played like that for the last 2 years and his next 2 will see him decline further. Now we have to find him other roles because he’s not capable of playing the role we are paying him for.
This is panning out exactly like some of us thought it would when we buckled and gave him this long term deal.
It's certainly one of the silver linings of being in a rebuild at the moment, that despite Sloane contract becoming more and more of an albatross as time has gone on, most of the damage is mitigated by us being in a situation where we should be struggling to reach the cap floor regardless. The only real risk is that we keep playing Sloane as a midfielder.
That said, it's certainly more likely that Sloanes deal was backended due to this year initially shaping up as our last "window" year (way back when in 17/'18).
