This is the player he is, I feel. He needs more experience but I’ve never watched him and thought that he won’t make it. He might not, of course, but he has the tools.He came off the bench for Birmingham against Coventry City away with Birmingham 2-0 down. And within about 10 minutes of his arrival he did more than Jobe Bellingham and Jordan James who started the game. Hannibal recorded a 100% pass completion from 28 touches but from watching the game live, I do remember him under hitting one pass, so the stat via Sofascore isn't 100% correct.
But apart from that, he showed excellent ability in tight spaces where he on one occasion was being aggressively pressed by a physically stronger player in his own defensive wide space and he turned him superbly well and then went past two more Coventry players before playing the ball into the striker Jutkiewicz, who gave the ball away via a heavy first touch. And he was dispossessed once in the time he was on the pitch, when he received the ball in the wide space on the left where he was surrounded by three Coventry players.
