All the vitriol the kid getting is self inflicted. He has been an Academy player from a very young age & to make dumb statements like he has is unacceptable.
On the other hand, he’s still in his late teens who doesn’t know what’s right/wrong. As kids at that age, we all might’ve done some silly shit but we were quickly reminded of who we are and taught to do things the right way. This kid is 100% misguided by family & agent for their financial gains. He won’t realize it yet but he’s surrounded by toxic people with poor advice. I hope someone level headed reaches out to this kid and lays it all bare for him to realize that whatever he has been doing publicly is pure madness. If he doesn’t realizes soon enough, he’ll have lot of troubles ahead in his life.
I still expect The to fail miserably & it becomes the cursed club for players in their twilight years only.
