If we had prime fern there is not a chance pep leaves him out. The normal system failed because we don’t have the right players to combat the Chelsea counter. The previous encounters with Chelsea put that little doubt in peps mind. He knew Rodri would be ambushed by kante and Jorginho.
Swap kante for Rodri and we win the final.
He did not play a stalwart in the biggest match. Pep is full of crap if he thinks we all believe he wanted another attacker. His whole model is build around the Dm. He knew that they would overrun Rodri and go straight through on goal.
He didn’t anticipate the rest of the team falling apart.
So we get rid of fernandinho and rodri because they weren't good enough for the CL final.
And Pep doesnt trust them. Thats your solution?
