Hope he shows us he can compete for a starting place when everybody is fit - otherwise it's goodbye & good luck. And that applies to each member of the squad without exception.
I like this. so comprehensively aware!
yet on specific topic I still consider that Pep is gonna make a good utility use of him.
might be wrong though.
I think the issue is he's young, talented, learning and playing a position he's not used to. Some take more time to learn. Some never learn.
Seems difficult to say, but having a versatile player also has its benefits, and Pep loves him some "utility players" as some here call such types across da pond.
He has some real attacking qualities and is left footed. When Silva goes, we lose one, and I know Stockport Iniesta is as well, but we've seen Zinny effective at times as a LWB against weaker opposition who park the bus. He just does not do it consistently.
He could blossom into a top player. Are Foden and Diaz "passengers?" They are all young and learning, but it is hard to give them regular game time given expectations for the club.
