    I don't dislike him but he's very mistake prone and rash at times. We definitely cannot depend on him and Stones alone for a whole season. It's okay in the league but these players get exposed quite badly in Europe.

    Although if he does obviously stay and gives his all. Obviously nothing to complain then. Just don't feel as confident with him as of now.

    Pick out one bad performance from Nico last season.

    Schalke away. ;-)

    In truth, that was the one that sprung to mind and I’m a hard, but fair, marker.

    Nico was rash under Pellegrini but Pep coached it out of him very quickly. He’d probably be the best backup centre back around if we keep him - much rather him than Maguire

    He barely played last season. And if I had to pick a game it would be the CL one.
    This is like saying pick out one bad performance from Danilo. The whole point is to improve upon players that can give more competition and help the squad out even more. If you're telling me he isn't defensively vulnerable then idk.

    I'd much rather neither but Pep knows better than all of us so if he keeps Otamendi then whats to say. His trust and confidence in players is more important than my or anyone's opinion.

    It helps the squad to keep his experience now vinny has gone,it doesn't help to have another defender take a couple of seasons to learn and settle
