This is a bit of a straw man argument. No one is asking or expecting him to be a saviour. He is merely being expected to be able to pass to a player in red and blue. Or remain onside. Or track back rather than ball watch. Put in the odd tackle, that sort of thing. He may only play as a substitute but it isn’t unreasonable to expect a sub, presumably with more energy than his opponents who have started the game, to contribute in a basic way to the teams effort. Sako has entirely failed to do this in each performance of 2017.

His only ‘role’ is as a ‘marker’ of squad quality. His presence on the pitch is an indicator that something has gone badly wrong in terms of recruitment and/or injuries. Which isn’t his fault, he doesn’t have a bad attitude (but could lose some weight). He’s just nowhere near good enough.
