Nope, not buying that. Every coach worth their salt knows to manage their team as a meritocracy. The best players with most talent and experience get the most playing time, not the ones who brown-nose the best.

He's is grasping at any reason available to him as an excuse to leave this guy at home. No speculation is needed. It's simple logical deduction.

As I said, this is Belgium's loss and Roma's gain, but if/when Belgium flop again (especially those midfielders) you can guarantee they'll come back to this decision.

When was Nainggolan appointed national hero of Belgium to the point he must be picked no matter what?

Its his job to cozy up to Martinez and to be nice so he can get a call up, he did not do that and last I remember Wilmots also left him at home in 2014.



How in the world is that his job? his is to play football well enough to earn a call up. If that is the job Martinez requires then Martinez is the problem.
because that's how it is in real life, it's not enough to "play well", this is clearly an example.

Players leverage their affinities with managers all the time, just look at Benzema in Madrid lol.

again, we are not talking about a top 10 midfielder in europe here, even if he would be near the top for his country, i dont think he makes them so marginally better that he is a must have.


He is by far Belgium's best CM. Instead of him its Fellaini ffs Laughing

and the disrespect here shown to Fellaini with his national team, he has been outstanding for them, regardless of what you think of him as a player.

Yeah, they are getting back a fully rested Radja for pre-season. Sucks he didn't get call up for Belgium but Roma probably would be a bit happy about this.

I would have sided with Nick's opinion but he picked Januzaj and a 4th goalie. The former who has been very hit and miss for La Real and I cannot explain the latter. This tells me it was not a tactical or even performance issue.

Martinez doesn't deserve any benefit of the doubt.

He's Moyes level except his team passes along the floor instead of the air.

He's absolutely terrible.

I think De Bruyne did better in the attacking phase this season. Scored 13 goals with 20 assists in all comps, which are impressive numbers. Radja scored 6 and assisted 11, a near reversal of his best season in terms of stats. Still a strong season, just in a different way.

This is largely why I put the "defensively" disclaimer on it.

exactly this. Nainggolans first job is to play the sport. If he's a total POS, then its up to the manager to work that personality in a way that best suits the team. He has done nothing on the contrary to warrant being completely left out of the side. You can claim he would make them marginally better but when belgiums midfield gets torn to shreds, we will ultimately come back to this decision and say it was a mistake.

calma lol...

no one is talking about him as if he's the best thing since kebab but he's clearly one of the 23 best belgian players. The reasoning for the omission is what is being questioned here. Tactical reasons. He is a good player tactically; he fits into multiple systems and is one of those midfield lynchpin type players. Its a cop out reason if its "purely tactical"

Unless the player in question is toxic and extremely controversial, leaving players out of the NT is pathetic and beyond stupid.

Who gives a *bleep* is a top class player enjoys a smoke? Club level, sure.

International tournaments? You need them to turn up for a handful of games over the Summer.

It's probably just a personality conflict. 23 man WC squads are insanely complex when you get to the top tier countries, Belgium being one of them. It's not always about picking the best players, which I think he clearly is up there for Belgium, but about picking complementary personalities/abilities. Maybe Martinez just believes he will be a negative influence, or doesn't fit into the tactical scheme.

Unless Naiggolan does not conform to discipline and ruins the squad atmosphere, this decision is ridiculous, disgusting and makes my blood boil. There have been a few major omissions in the world cup squads announced so far but arguably this one is the worst of all.

The tactical reasons only make sense if its very clear that Nainggolan would throw tantrums if asked to sit on the bench at times. Most likely its pure hogwash though. As for his being a negative influence I hope that is true because otherwise this is an infuriating decision.
