No he was always highly rated. If I recall right though, he was playing behind the striker. Someone more knowledgeable than me can add on.I might be wrong, but my understanding is that he wasn't even particularly highly rated at youth level but just took his chance when the stars aligned and never looked back.
Can anyone confirm that?
It makes me wonder what young players might've been capable of the same but just never got that chance.
