Thread: Filip Benkovic

  1. #1

    Filip Benkovic

    Remember him?

    Leicester paid 13 million for him a few seasons ago.
    Went from one disastrous loan spell to another and has now been released by Leicester apparently.

    Dreadful footballer

    Re: Filip Benkovic

    I don't recall ever actually seeing him play, but more than one manager has decided not to play him so there's something not right.

    Wycombe away last season when Morrison got injured. Wasn't Benkovic at fault for both their goals?

    Came on and walked round the pitch.

    Let players run past him

    Thought you were going to say he was signing for City!

    "On 9 August 2018, Leicester City confirmed via their official website that Benković signed for the club on a five-year contract, for a fee in the region of 13m. He left the club after mutually agreeing to cancel the remaining term of his contract on 12 January 2022."

    Never played a game for Leicester according to wikipedia. Sounds worse than some of the signings Cardiff have made.

    Ah yes.... the Gary Madine defence.

    'He may have been useless but he inspired promotion'!

    I like it.

    Shout out to Pedro DLR. You called this right fair play.

    Love to take this credit but not sure it is merited! He was just garbage

    It's definitely merited. I remember having a right old discussion about him with you and I was swayed and wooed by his appearances for Croatia and the fact he was bought for 13M(?) but you'd read a lot of Rogers thoughts on him. You should take a bow on this one.

    Genuine question though. What went wrong with the lad? It must be in his head. I wonder what happened?

    To sum it up briefly, he just didn't care

    I do get that but my question is why? What happened to the lad to not make him care? I just think it's an interesting story because I'm interested in the psychology. We see it happen with certain promising players and it intrigues me.
