Journalist rages over Brenden Aaronson situation

The fact that Leeds United’s “ridiculous talent” Brenden Aaronson wasn’t starting for the USA against England is a “crime”, according to Forbes journalist Manuel Veth.

The 22-year-old, who moved to Elland Road from RB Salzburg in the summer has made a bright start to life in the Premier League – but wasn’t deemed worthy of a starting berth against England by national coach Gregg Berhalter.

Aaronson was instead used as an impact substitute with just 15 minutes remaining – coming on for Weston McKennie in midfield as he looked to impose his youthful energy on a rather pedestrian England side.

American journalist Veth though, believes that Aaronson possessed the qualities to help the U.S. both from the bench and from the starting XI, and was disappointed he couldn’t see the attacking midfielder from the off.

He posted a tweet, which said: “Brenden Aaronson masterclass coming in. Ridiculous talent and a crime that he didn’t start her.

“But he should be able to create some real damage against some tired legs.”

Tough choice

For American boss, Berhalter, the draw against England was almost the perfect night.

It would be hard to argue he made any selection mistakes considering the U.S.’s dominance over pre-tournament favourites England throughout the night, even if Leeds fans were left a little disappointed at his omission.

McKennie, Tyler Adams and Yunus Musah were an immense trio all night, hurrying the English midfield whenever they were on the ball and helping to spring a number of American counterattacks in the second half.

Aaronson did give the States a different quality when he came onto the pitch though.

The ability to carry the ball and glide through challenges is one of the Leeds man’s best traits and this was again crucial to his performance when he came on.

Whether the U.S. could have done with his from the start of the game is a tough choice, as you couldn’t fault their starting midfield in the slightest.
