I think it's very legitimate that some posters come to the conclusion that PK might not be really liked in the dressing room by some of his teammates. There are enough incidents and allusions to believe that it's a possibility. Clearly not the absolute proof you ask for, but enough to suggest that it might be something we have to take into consideration when talking about his contract.
Still, that doesn't mean they, and that's also my point of view, want PK out or dislike him. It means that it might be risky to give him a long term contract and that it could explain why the negotiations are complex.
Obviously, it's possible that it has nothing to do with it and that it's just about the money. But there is no evidence of that neither. With all respect, until you can prove it's only money related, I don't see why you refuse to take into consideration other hypothesis.
The basis of the argument is that he was called out by his teammates, and that makes him a prima donna . I think we can all agree that what Bertrand wrote about him (going to concerts) is pure stupidity, and doesn't make him a prima donna.
If he was called out in a negative fashion by his teammates, we would probably have heard about it. Those using this "source" to denigrate him should probably back it up.
I never said he is liked by all, or not. I never said this was all about the money. I can't assume those type of things, since I am not in the locker room. The burden of proof is on the people who posted the assumptions as fact.
