    Played 15 games so far this season, for Danish club Hobro IK on loan. 1 goals & 1 assist too.

    Thought his dad would be back to lay down a few riddles by now

    He must be on loan from AC Milan. When AC Milan next have a game big enough for Anel, he'll be back. It's just a question of waiting for an opening for Anel.

    He was mocked relentlessly on here because of his ?dad's comments. But he always looked a fine player and it was such a shame not to have found a place for him in the squad. It doesn't seem so funny now to let a future international player leave for nothing, does it?

    A year is a long time in a players development, we lost Kieron Freeman, Patrick Bamford, Ben Brereton and others besides who thought they were ready for first team football and wouldn't listen to the coaches who knew them inside out. I watched 2 of those regularly and they weren't ready, as was proven by their lack of game time at our level for the next 12 months.
    The question that young players should ask themselves is would those 3, Anel et al be better players today had they trusted the club with their development as Cash, Worral and Yates have done?

    Anel sounds as if he's doing pretty well for himself. It's our loss. He a class above most of the under23's at the time. Maybe he was a difficult character? I wouldn't know but he looked a better player even then than Semedo has been this season. Even a few appearances on the subs bench might have encouraged him to stay.

    For me his issues were, in order - 1. Impatience for a first team opportunity and where exactly to fit him into the team. (Possibly his Dad's influence...)
    2. Aitor Karanka's reluctance to playing youngsters who weren't already established in the team.
    3. He had enough physicality (and height) to be a cut above in the Under 23s but needed to put on significant muscle-mass to be a Championship center-back, not a massive problem, as Joe Worrall is a recent example of doing this.

    I doubt whether he would have been tough enough for CB but there were times when he could have filled in at fullback or defensive midfield. He certainly had quality and it should have been encouraged.

    Anel leaving was the best possible thing for all parties.

    He was clearly above u23s and had a " confidence" about him that not a lot have. Some might not call it "confidence" but when the attitude becomes toxic then there is no point letting it go on.

    I was happy to let him go knowing that he could do big things down the line. Some are not meant to be. These are the other success stories of the academy though. We certainly helped him along the way.

    The issue wasn't whether people thought he had, still had, the talent to take him a long way in the game rather than his dad's insistence that he was better than what we had and should be a starting regular as a teenager when several managers and coaches obviously didn't think he was ready.

    He wasn't ready then, he may be now. His dad wanted it then.

    His Dad wanted Anel to be front and centre on a Saturday afternoon, which was physically impossible at the time, he just wasn't ready.

    If he's ready for international football a year after he left , then perhaps he was good enough for the odd appearance in a struggling in the second division.

    He wasn't ready then. He may be now, but his dad wanted it all then rather than wait until now.

    He's had a good year then from second division reserve to full international in 12 months.

    My views on Anel have always stood.
    He stood out for me watching the under 18s , I said then he was a class act and I personally thought he should have been given more of a chance.
    The whole thing with his dad didn't help matters and it was sad to see him leave.
    I watched him play live about a dozen times and I knew from a couple of games he had something extra about him.
    Its great to watch the academy players go on to great things .
    There are some that don't make it like Choz who I thought was a decent player , but on the whole I get most right.
    Burke, Brereton, Cash, Worrall, Arvin,
    Yass and Richardson are two I really like also.

    Full International in a friendly for a country that is desperately looking under every rock to try and add some players into an ageing and shrinking selection pool (as an example, he'd be in direct competition with Alex Milosevic for a place and he doesn't even have a club).
    It will be far more telling if he makes a competitive appearance any time soon.
