He didn’t like Gerrard…

“…Sanson has almost fulfilled the conditions to make the loan permanent. In the event that Sanson makes 17 or more starts in Ligue 1 and Les Aiglons finish 8th or higher in the league, the option becomes an obligation.”

Thats fair enough, we didn't like Gerrard either. But I'm not sure Morgan does himself any good there, if Emery really asked him to stay, why wouldn't you do that? Most of me thinks, yeah, bad egg, get rid.

It's always easy to blame someone else. Lots of players struggled badly under Gerrard like Bailey and have thrived since. Sanson is a talented player but ultimately was a big flop. Don't think he had the athleticism for "our league" really. If Emery had truly wanted him, and he applied himself over pre season, ironically enough he could have got lots of minutes for us this season with likes of Ramsey injured and the extra Euro games.
