Bobby Duncan has posted a video of Tim Sherwood and Andy Townsend discussing his move to Fiorentina on The Debate last night – along with the caption ‘Someone finally understands’.
The pundits are congratulating Duncan for having the courage to force a move and go and try his luck in another country, citing the examples of other young English players who’ve done the same and gone on to play international football – although who is there apart from Jadon Sancho?
What Duncan doesn’t realise though is it’s not the fact he left for a greater chance of first-team football that has clouded his reputation. It’s the behaviour of his agent and the manner in which he went about the situation – branding Liverpool bullies and weaponising mental health to get a transfer through.
We have no issue with what Sherwood and Townsend are saying here, but an enormous one with agent Saif Rubie and his role in Duncan’s career…
Someone finally understands!! Thanks Tim & Andy 🙌🏻 pic.twitter.com/j6UjRXfpYE— Bobby Duncan (@bobbyduncan999) September 3, 2019
