    Not Bad But I Am Praying That Atsu Will Get More Playing Time For FC Porto

  2. keith from germany says:

    scholastic icon,atsu’s problems are silvestre varela n james rodriguez.atsu was having the overhand at the beginnin of the season.coach victor pereira had confindence in atsu becuz of his blistering pre-season form.he praised atsu very well after the pre-season games against valencia n fc lyon.in all these games atsu excelled.
    varela was that time on holiday becuz he was with the pportuguese national team during the euro 2012 hosted in poland n the ukraine´,so as he returned from holidays,he varela has to start afresh so that made coach pareira favoured atsu.in the first two league games he started ats.atsu performde well in the first league game but in the second game he flopped so after 35 minutes he was subtitiuted n varela replaced him.as varela came in he excelled so that propelled the porto coach to drop atsu to the bench becuz varela uterlized the opportunity to the fullest through that atsu was out of the team.
    but every now n then he comes in the game in the ,last 17 minutes or so to play.
    as at now the colombian international james rodriguez n the portuguese national player silvestre varela are firm starters.
    but i hav to admitt atsu always look sharp when he is bein introduced to the game.i watched atsu’s champions league against croatia zagreb in zagreb as he came in n set the second goal up for porto through the belgian international defour.and in their second champions league game against french big spenders psg,he realy gave the psg defenders a hell of a time especially french international jallet looked like a clown.
    atsu will definately get there becuz the future belongs to him since he is 20 years old.
