Good point.

But at the same time, thats what he is paid to do. We should not forget that. We carry him at a 7m pricetag.

At 7m, he should be a franchise player. Even if he can't be that, but still is a very good player for us, I think its worth to keep him around.

But he better contribute more then he did last season. If not, and he just is a somewhat engmatic 25-30 goal scorer for us, having him on at the team at 7m per is a big burden actually.
