How much have you thought about Cheikhou Kouyate in the last 18 months?
In the last 24 hours, fans on Twitter have been discussing his sale in 2018 and they all agree on one thing about the transfer decision.
The actual sale of the 6 ft 2 midfield monster wasn’t the mistake, not finding a proper replacement for him was and it’s hard to disagree with.
No not replacing him with better was the mistake

Not replacing him was the huge mistake

Not replacing him and many others was the mistake

Selling him isn’t the “huge” mistake – he seemed disinterested and also didn’t really nail a position (cm, dm, rb, cb). Not reinvesting the funds in someone to replace is the huge mistake

Nope not investing in a better player was

Selling Kouyate and Obiang and not replacing them with a box to box midfield was a mistake – yes.

No. The mistake was not replacing him. Additionally he was hated on so much at the end of his time with us and i feel that was uncalled for because when he was with us he always had a good attitude and tried hard.
