This. 1,000% this. Midfielders are paid to pass. STRIKERS ARE PAID TO SCORE FUCKING GOALS.
It's not a goal until its a goal. The goal turns a pass into an assist. Before that, its just a pass.
Who the absolute fuck ever talks about the greatest PASSING striker? No one. LITERALLY no one.
Next someone is going to tell me yeah so and so is not a great goalkeeper but man hes got a great shot from distance. We should DEFINITELY hold onto him.
Like what. The absolute. Fuck.
