Morelos doesn’t make Colombia Copa America squad

The idea that clubs will now be offering a fortune less because he’s not been called up to sit on the bench behind Zapata, Muriel and Falcao is mind boggling.

His value certainly won’t drop because he hasn’t been called up, it simply will not happen.

People expecting him to go clearly haven’t looked at Duvan Zapata’s form for Atalanta, he’s been sensational this year.

He was a shoe-in for a place in the squad.

Hopefully Alfredos exclusion allows him to take stock of his limitations and he screws the nut. I love him as a player but another season at Ranger's working hard and staying on the pitch may be for the best.

A good young striker with bags of potential who won’t be playing in a summer tournament!
I don’t think clubs will be put off

Surprised he hasn't at least made the provisional squad, time for him to screw the nut and get the head down. Another season with the teddy bears, 40+ goals, title 55 and a few goals in Europa League and he'll force his way back in.

There’s always a chance he didn’t make it because they have got a plethora of top class attacking options.

Of course getting sent off and benched for the remaining games in the SPL wouldn’t exactly look great from a coaches POV.
The sending off at Parkhead has really fucked him, all eyes would have been on him that day and he made an arse of it.


On the flip side he may decide to knuckle down and stay here for another year and prove he’s learned his lesson.

I’m still really struggling to forgive him after that red card, reallly am.

Plenty of time for him yet. Look at the quality of players ahead of him? The others breaking through like Zapata are at the top level in Europe and South America. He will get his chance again if he keeps working hard.

Was never making it even before that I believe.
This is not even the final squad, it is the 40 man squad that gets cut down further and he has not even made that

His 5th red of the season and not starting in 6 games is behind it

15 mins of game time in 5 games at the critical time for international managers making their decisions has undoubtedly killed his chances. Completely his own fault.

I think lessons will now be learned, sadly it won’t be us who benefit from him growing up and leaving the petulance behind.

He was played, simple as that, studs down the achilles and he reacted, next time he needs to go down.

Browns play acting also got him sent off, exact same as he did with Flanagan at the weekend.
Agree fully, deliberately fouled off the ball and reacted to that we tool brown.

To go from being in a 23 man squad to not being in a 40 man squad can only be down to indiscipline.

From 4th choice forward to 12th choice (at best).

Alfie has more or less always been yellow and red carded for incidents in Scotland that others don't, so I don't recognise this mhedia driven petulance nonsense. He's still very young and with plenty of time to make future Colombian squads.
At times but ge is aff his nut and causes his own bother a lot of the time.

Cant let him off blaming it on bias or poor refs. Majority of it is because he cant be trusted to behave himself.

Let's be honest here would you take him ? In a competition such as this red card can be damaging as your not playing that many games correct decision by the manager and he only has his himself to blame.

Intriguing to see what happens here Morelos wouldn't have expected this ... imo this means we need to sort his future out asap so we can properly prepare for his exit. I honestly don't think he will be here come the start of next season we now need to find the highest bidder with any extra add ons and sell and reinvest a good chunk of it into quality additions over the summer.

It's imperative this doesn't drag on especially with the Europa League Qualifiers upon on very soon and we need everyone physically and mentally prepared for it.

Must have come as a shock to him. I watched him dance about the pitch with his Colombia flag on Sunday.

Important thing now is that we manage his departure as well as possible and ensure we get our money with our value being met.

Not great for us if we're wanting to sell this summer, but another tough lesson for the guy and one he'll learn from.

He seriously needs to cut out his petulance or it's going to cost him.

Give us your all for another season, bring us a 55 or a trophy and you'll leave for a bigger league a hero.
Will he learn though?

He has thrown it away himself, along with a few extra million for us. Thanks but good luck to you at your next club Freddo.

Only got himself to blame, he would have been one of the last few selected even if he was picked but hardly playing for a month now made it easy to not
Yep, not picking up that red card and thus not having a strong end to the season, has cost him and will undoubtedly cost us, in terms of fee.

Morelos?

He absolutely was not a shoe in, that’s crazy talk.
He was a shoe-in for the 40, of course he was.

Morelos has ruined this for himself, and I would bet this is a tactic from Queiroz to solve his indiscipline. He is highly rated in Colombia but he isn’t needed right now; this is a way to make him a better player in the long run. It’s man management rather than disregard.

Not good news for us, as “not making the 40” is a cheap bargaining chip for interested clubs.

I'm not sure he was ever making it at all, to be honest. It's not as if his abilities went down as a result of being benched, and his discplinary record for Colombia is exemplary. Mad how much people took it for granted he'd be in the squad.

The young man needs to sort out his ill discipline. I know he’s targeted, but a good deal of it he brings on himself.

It’s a harsh lesson, but missing almost the entire business end of a season ain’t getting you selected for national squads. Teams need players they can absolutely rely upon.

He’s young. Plenty of time to learn but learn he must

Be good if he did stay but his interview suggests he fancies a new challenge. Who can blame him wanting to swap Scotland for France or Spain or similar?

It doesn’t decrease his value.

It doesn’t inflate it, but it won’t decrease it from what it was.

I’m still struggling to forgive him for the red card at Parkhead after his indiscipline all season and how big the game was.

It was the final nail of the title race not winning that day.

Gutted for him but he did himself no favours with that sending off at the piggery. Managers will struggle to trust him.

You can imagine the tarriers banging their keyboards with rage in pidgeon Spanish from behind a VPN using Google translate.

Heh ...Compadre. we doh knee no shtingking bashes. That Morelos is an animal que do we show the world with an aggressive footballer in our squad. I won't be supporting our national team of he is in it. So no selecto gringo Huns. Comprênde el Los hijo de puta.

Gutted for the wee man. He deserves to be there with his skill.
You forgot to call his mother for the couch that she is...

much of the forward players are wingers, to get a starting slot as a striker he'd have to beat Falcao, Bacca and Zapata.

Also, Izquerdo who cost brighton 14 million didnt get in either

don't really think it will do anything to his value, people will watch the Copa America for future stars but it's not like the European Championships or the World Cup for viewership outside the main country it's attracting

Zapata will more likely start in the Colombian team so the only thing Morelos could have really hoped for was a place in the squad. Falcao has scored 14 in Ligue 1 for a Monaco team who are still looking at the real possibility of being relegated

How come he never had a discipline problem before he came to this shit hole? How many of his red cards were actually down to his discipline, or refs being conned or just making shocking decisions? Last season it was Ryan Jack and look how that went.
