Bring Back The Domestic Schedule

Adnan Januzaj is a lethal set-piece specialist.

Adnan Januzaj is a lethal set-piece specialist.

Unless you are a die-hard Spaniard, the international football scene hasn’t exactly been the most enjoyable in recent years.

With many big countries upsetting the football odds by failing at the final hurdle, many fans (in particular those from England) prefer to focus on club football. With the breakaway from the domestic game, it seems people have more time to talk utter drivel.

Not just on the social media platforms but on blogs too, and even more so in the national media. The best example of this is the recent saga surrounding Adnan Januzaj.

The Manchester United youngster has been talked about for a few years, earning Manchester United’s under 21 player of the season last year, but he burst onto the scene with a brace against Sunderland just ahead of the World Cup qualifiers this month.  United were on course for a shock result in the Premier League best match odds if they were to lose to the Black Cats but the youngster changed all that in the blink of an eye.

There’s no denying the goals were of the highest quality but it appears that the lack of football has sent everyone a little delirious. How often do we see players look like world-beaters before they end up playing in the lower leagues after their potential somehow evaded them overnight?

Januzaj will have had some of the best coaching but plenty of players from the top clubs fail to reach the top – and yet here we are discussing who should fight for his signature at international level.

There are some cracking young players out there who will be overshadowed by foreign imports and they genuinely do have the ability. But the problem with Januzaj is the fact that he has only showed he can do it in one game at the top level.

There’s no doubt he has ability and he could go all the way, but with so little evidence on show isn’t it time we stopped harping on about him to add to the pressure?
