They played terrible, and everyone in Camp Nou thought the same as VG. But VG won't bench them like he did earlier with Rivaldo. They are too important to the team in this stage of the CL, Liga and Copa.
Due to the recent problems VG has faced with Kluivert, he has been over-looked for Saturday's match against Real Oviedo. Kluivert has played poorly in the last 3 matches, and has publicly critised VG, which VG responded to by dropping him. Dani takes over his place. These recent problems could see Kluivert switching to the English Premier League next season.
