Yeah but what I'm saying is, he's not a midfielder because he doesn't want the ball at all. He barely touches it. Minimum requirement from a midfielder is to want the ball.
He only wants it on the edge of the box where he can lay it off quickly and look to get in space. He does look very good at that so I can't wait to see him start getting on the end of a few Rooney cut backs, but if he's one of your centre kids then you're going to struggle!
His Ajax highlights reel suggested to me that he does want the ball and to make things happen from midfield.
At the moment, it's as much a case of playing a different position in a new team, in a new league and generally getting up to speed.
The best is yet to come.
