In his book don’t die with the music in you. He comments on big offers to young players as follows:
Context is a 20 year year player in the 90s who received a huge offer and Bennett did not provide a counter offer and let him go.
I just felt if he stayed at our club he would be staying for the wrong reasons.
I also believe that at such a young age he should be worrying about where he’s going instead of arriving somewhere, and if he’s going to go to the highest bidder now, he most definitely going to go there a few years down the track anyway.
