He needed to be benched, but all the blame for the situation lies with Pioli.
I agree. I believe he is trying his best. His life is probably hell right now despite all the effort in the world.
Cassel is personally not to blame for this, he's doing his job the best he can. It's Romeo and Pioli who are to blame for the team's condition.
