Smart vs Dumb players in our squad

Which one of our players do you think are smart (high IQ) or generally have a sound mind outside of football vs the traditional cliche that footballers are generally dumb.

I feel that the following players are smart (going by their interviews)
1) Bruno
2) Maguire
3) Varane
4) Rashford

On the other hand I think the following have thick skulls

1) AWB
2) Sancho
3) Martial
4) Lingard

Jury is out on Shaw, Matic, Fred, Pogba

Pogba can speak English, Spanish, french and Italian. I don’t think he’s stupid

I would expect this - a player of his calibre should speak at least four languages.

Just to clarify, I probably should have said bottom 3... the guy can hardly string a sentence together.

the irony here...can't distinguish top from bottom...

Sancho isn't dumb at all. Go watch his interview with Rio. He handled "leading" questions regarding Dortmund
in a way that made Rio seem somewhat nieve and...dumb.

if he conducted an interview with anybody then he clearly isn't dumb.

What the hell you on about?

Messi and Ronaldo have incredible football intelligence yet seem a bit stupid when it comes to traditional intelligence.

It's like how we measure animal intelligence based on how animals perform on tasks which we measure human intelligence on.

Imagine animals tested us on their aspects of intelligence. They would think we are stupid.

And we have just seen the consequence of our least football intelligent player.

Yup. Can't fault his effort, and in the moment when he doesn't have to think ahead, like a 1 v 1 he's terrific, but he lost the place there. Whether it's a red or not, why give the ref a decision to make in that area? Not smart.
