    Deployed as a right back and won man of the match.What a way.

  • And if it is a certain coach that do this, those that have never been to football coaching school will start calling the coach different names. U will start hearing something like he played players out of position, he is not proactive, he doesn’t read the game well, he doesn’t take risk etc nothing u will not see for naija dey Sabi make mouth like kilode as if to say they can do better

    Because that certain coach does that whenever there are better options in that position. Gerrard decided to play him in that position because his #1 and #2 options were not available.
    There is no need to convert a central defender to a wing back whenever Aina is available because Aina is currently the best wing back for SE. He can defend, attack, score and assist.
