    This Atsu boy is so overhyped by Asempa fm commentators making everyone believe he's so good but he's not. He has a lot to learn seriously, he's not consistent in his performances, definitely not good enough to play regularly for the black stars, only AA would idolise this guy. So does AA learn from his numerous experimentations? A decisive coach in Mourhino just figured Atsu is not needed at this point but an indecisive coach like AA would keep experimenting till he'll freezes over..
