“I think at this age in strikers you can always see that hunger to score and they always want to do something in the box, and I think for him it was really nice.

“We all started as young boys and everyone knows the feeling of how difficult it is to come to the first team and perform the way you perform with the youth team, so we have to give him credit and hope it’s a sign of more coming in the future.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
