    Endo has done a reasonable job but gets caught on the ball to often, a stop gap signing. We do not have an experienced defensive midfielder, Mac if better further upfield. If the new manager plays3 4 3 we will need good cover for that back 3 ,Varela would be ideal. Sell Salah and buy Varela and Inacio.
