Unless we play back 3 or play him as RW, I think he's a bad fit for us in the back 4 as AWB in possession based football.He's actually very smart and cunning on the pitch, the type who will always give a little push or step on someones toes when the ref is not watching, and he's also very intelligent and self aware off the pitch. He just has no technique or composure, so he looks like a mad bull at times which I imagine led to the brainless comments. Like others are saying, he's a bit like Valencia, only with even less technical ability and marginally less pure pace. Fantastic athlete though, incredible determination and mentality.
Absolutely love the guy, Denzel would be a dream signing from a personal POV and I think objectively a very good RB option for us compared to what we have now, at least for the price quoted.
His best quality is on opposition half, even final third. He's a pseudo final third attacker, but lacking the ball carrying and passing tool in the build up. The only good defensive thing about him is aerial ability. So yeah, I don't see a defender in him.
