Some people don’t even think he does that. I was criticising him in the Mina thread because we didn’t sell last summer. We can’t let the few valuable players we have run their contracts down or sell with only 12 months left. That, to me, seemed like a pretty basic strategy for a director of football. Can’t remember who it was but they were saying it’s not Brands fault and he doesn’t even decide who/when to start contract renewals or who/when we sell.Sorting contracts and negotiating deals is about all the clout he has . Moshiri and every manager moshiri has appointed do the rest .
There were strong rumours from certain people coming from the club that Benitez wants brands gone long term . this was being said as early as pre season .I’d even go so far as to suggest that maybe Benitez’s actions and tactical screw-ups are considered acts to highlight the limitations of Brands and force Moshiri to boot Brands out of the club.
Hmmmmm…food for thought? Benitez is a sneaky get.
