He’s a show pony. Only interested in himself. Doesn’t pass when he should. Passes when he shouldn’t. Tries the spectacular too frequently and often neglects the simple and obvious. Has had the opportunity in several occasions to demonstrate that he deserves to start but continues to blow it. He thinks he’s better than he really is.
C3 You have to be joking! Shinji covered every blade of grass tonight. He battled hard against Toure and didn’t give up when he was pushed off the ball. He tracked back in extra time and even covered Fuchs on several occasions.
