He couldn't get a work permit for us. Pep wanted him back.Easy run out and comfortable victory for them in Leith.
I know it wasn’t the most challenging of circumstance, but I’ll never understand why we never kept/bought back Douglas Luiz. He would have been capable of playing instead of or alongside Rodri. His appreciation of space and constant movement are a real joy to watch.
Selling him for a big fee and him going to Villa on big wages meant he met criteria to get a work permit. As ridiculous as that sounds.
At City he would have been one of the lowest earners and hadn't earned enough Brazil caps to get in that way.
