He's a great coach. His eye for talent is questionable, though. Which is why he needed (and still needs) a [good] director of football above him. Since leaving us, he seems to have learned a lesson. Enough to steer clear of the Clint Dempsey, Christian Benteke and Joe Allen type-- decent mid-table players but nowhere near good enough for a team challenging. Oh, he's a smart negotiator, too. He squeezed Leicester there for a new contract.
