I have to pin this on Benny. His inability to grow as a player is-in my view- due to his lack of commitment and lack of training and/or listening to coach. There is no way that a player with his skills- that has seen what he has seen, and knows what he know should be in this position. He is just getting outworked and beaten to the starting lineup by players that have a stronger desire to play. That is overriding (what should be) his superior mind and ability to play at a higher level. Benny never shored up his weaknesses and has let his strengths get worse and worse. You get better (like shooting) by spending time on the practice pitch. There is no way that a 17 year old in beating him to start unless Benny has been phoning it in for a while (maybe years). You don't lose your 'talent' that quickly- unless Fagundez is Rahim Sterling or Wayne Rooney.
