Yeah, but you know what people are like when it comes to youngsters. They believe they are all fantastic and can all make the first team here.Wasn't he the one everyone was gushing about, since he was such a natural footballer and similar to Lahm?
He is a genuinely good player. Fast, intelligent, comfortable in possession. Perhaps there's a stylistic comparison to made with Lahm but if he was anything like as good as that he'd be staying. In truth he was unlikely to make it here with the likes of Shaw, AWB, Dalot, Laird, Williams ahead of him.
Playing CB for our reserves was the last thing he needed for his development. At this stage he needs to be playing first team football. Really looking forward to following his progress as he is definitely one of Ireland's best prospects.
