This just tells me how much you know about top-class sports. Its an bizarre statement and blatantly clueless.I’d pay top dollar to have a conversation with the man who used to play this lad as a winger. He wouldn’t be good enough to play winger in the Swedish 5th division let alone anywhere in England.
I got slated for this before, but he is up there as one of the worst footballers I’ve ever seen play for ManUtd. Professional tackler, not a professional footballer.
(btw, I was a fan of the signing and was encouraged by his first season, but not only have I realised he is hopeless in attack, he is actually also a defensive liability if you take out tackling- and yes, playing defense is a lot more than just making a good looking slide tackle; the best defenders actually don’t ever find themselves in a position where they have to slide that often anyway since their positional play is top notch).
