Tbh injuries have really put a dampener on his career with us. Absolute superb 1st season but it was all down hill from there. If he could get over his injuries then I would keep him as a back up player. But if he does leave then I wish him all the best in his career

He’s done a lot of good for us, let him go before that gets overshadowed. Could barely move end of last season

We seem to be a graveyard for eold class DFCMs…Palacios, Sandro, now Victor. They were all beasts until they lost it. Victor was unbelievable 3 years ago, he’s definitely a sell now though
