Why wouldn’t that be surprising?In the context of this thread, Pau Torres may have worse stats than Lindelof aerially and that's fair to bring up. But it also wouldn't be even remotely surprising if we signed him and he did improve us aerially despite those previous stats, as subjective opinion (or even just his extra physical height) might suggest he would. And if there was a Villareal fan here who watched him regularly then I'd probably be more interested in their subjective opinion than that statistical breakdown.
If we talk about stats, Pau Torres has pretty much the worst aerial stats in the whole la Liga.
Of the 49 CBs that played more than 15 games last season, only one won less aerials than him.
This season, there are 7 out of 51 who have won less aerials.
There is at least nothing that indicates that he would improve us aerially.
