He's dealt with some very very good players extremely well. In fact IMO his best performances have come against the better players a lot of people were worried how he'll perform against. Even against Ribery, although he got sent off, I thought he was great. Was terrific tonight I thought. Gave Bale absolutely no space. Bale beat him once, I think, but other than that occasion he stuck to the Welshman like a magnet. Definitely under the 'special' talent category for me.
