He's in Argentina, with Independiente. 9 appearances and 1 goal between Clausura and Libertadores.

The little I've seen about him back in Argentina is that he's found himself in an almost identical situation - coach won't play him consistently and the fan base is split 50/50 on whether he should play more

Even going back to San Lorenzo, Veron has managed to never be a regular starter.  That is across 3 teams now.

 

Not saying all of the coaches are right, but it definitely says something.

Should what?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Play more

it's what i assumed.

 

he started in their last Libertadores game, but was subbed out. i think they scored after he came out. it's prob best if he would move to a Buenos Aires team that isn't The Big 5. he should transfer to Huracan, since they would need someone for their Libertadores run in 2019.

Can you edit your prior post to complete the thought?
I know that I cannot use apostrophes, but I can edit.

Not my post, but that sentence works. The he in whether he should refers to the coach that wont play him consistently.

My point was that PLAY is missing, and can be added.

I think it can be safely assumed.

The coach wont [verb phrase] but the fans are split on whether he should [same verb phrase is implied].

I wont go to the game but my friends are split on whether I should.

But, why should it be?

Omitting "play" in the second part of the sentence is better grammar. Including it is redundant.

Omitting "play" ... is better grammar.


Adding a period is better punctuation. Then, we would know that the sentence was ended, not incomplete.
