If that's true, no wonder they did so poorly with maclean.
Well ostensibly it was because he was late to meetings, or at least that was the reason given...but that doesn't mesh with the Kovy that we saw under Lemaire and DeBoer though (in terms of being a team guy and willing to listen to the coach) so it could be horse****, who knows. That feels like so long ago now.
