Dr. Maserati said:I have to ask what credit does he deserve? In particular this year. He accepted LA in to the team and then sat back when it came time to decide who was going to be leader.
Both AC & LA are extremely competitive riders but at some point a decision had to be made to define a clear leader and Bruyneel let his heart dictate instead of backing AC who was clearly the better rider.
To me that is what management is about and in my view he failed.
in my view he failed.
How many TDF victories does he need not to fail? Even last year Astana won AND got third place. Most punters would say he was on the money.
