It was a great tackle made possible because he was caught out of position. He has always had poor positioning at full back which is hardly surprising as he was a winger, but in the past his recovery pace masked it. Now it doesn't, he often gets caught out and our centre backs have to split. It's a fairly similar story with Young.https://www.redcafe.net/threads/an-ode-to-antonio-valencia.425684/
This thread was made around the same time Jose made the comments. I don't think its really a stretch to say he was one of the best RB in the league or even in the world at some point in his career. I agree he's finished at this level but we should not forget the contributions he made for the club. This man is a dedicated professional and gave us everything.
Monster tackle on Firmino.
