But you're going to have the same issue, but you've just moved it to a different position. Because in most games our midfielders are going to see the vast majority of the ball. If they're poor on the ball, it'll again be a hindrance.Yeah, I see what you're saying, but trying to get him to run and cross a ball is probably more of a stretch than asking him to win the ball and give it simple to a more creative midfield colleague.
The only position I can see him really thriving is a RCB in a back 3 (see Azpi under conte). But there's only one manager in football who's shown he's capable of playing that system to a high level, and that's Antonio Conte.
