Yeah he is, but I donít think it suits him.
He performed it better today than he has done previously, but I think he lacks the required quality on the ball in that role to really make a dent on most opposing midfields.
If youíre a pressing CM youíre never the deepest player.
Examples are early 2000íS Milan where Pirlo would be the furthest back with Gattuso pressing ahead; and Chelsea two years ago with Matic deeper and Kanye ahead.
He needs to be comfortable further forward, even if itís just 5 yard lay offs to others.
