Considering that McKennie had been playing a regular first-team role of late, but finds himself on the bench following the arrival of Zakaria, you could be forgiven for believing that the American may not be the happiest with his signature, but the reaction to his debut goal shows quite the opposite.
McKennie’s reaction just proves that he puts the team first in my opinion, which is exactly the type of player that we want in this team, although we also want players to be showing their hunger when they do get their chance also.
Could Zakaria and McKennie fit into the same formation?
