Player’s exit turning from excitement to ‘bitterness’ as insider drops a huge claim—’forcing”things’, not going well…

The conclusion of the transfer window saw Southampton opt to sell Moussa Djenepo to Standard Liège, seizing the opportunity to offload the winger despite incurring a significant financial loss. Initially met with excitement in Belgium, Djenepo’s return has now evolved into a sense of ‘bitterness,’ according to Le Soir.

The cause of this transformation lies in Djenepo’s struggle to replicate his past performances, leading to a ‘difficult comeback’ to Belgian football. Despite assuming a leadership role in the club’s dressing room, his on-field challenges persist. Deployed on the wing in a 3-5-2 formation deemed unsuitable for him, Djenepo finds himself ‘forcing things’ more frequently.

While his manager recognizes the need for time to readapt, concerns arise as Djenepo is yet to contribute with goals or assists since his return. Le Soir proposes a potential solution, suggesting a shift to a more central role, alleviating defensive responsibilities and potentially revitalizing his impact.

The anticipated dream return to Standard Liège from Southampton is currently faltering, prompting the need for adjustments. Whether through positional changes or tactical adaptations, a shift seems imperative for Djenepo to rediscover his form and salvage the initially promising return to Belgian football.
