I think it must be a skill. Like that chance he had in the week where he made a one on one out of just running directly at someone - they’re supposed to be freaks them but his YouTube was full of them and he’s buried about 4 of them this year.
It’s got to be an art, of sorts. I played centre half for years and I’m trying to put myself in the position of facing a player who is unorthodox, direct, a pest, never stops running and is always trying to get in or around the danger areas.
I reckon he’d be a nightmare as he doesn’t make your usual runs, he’d sometimes run straight through you than round you, and you can see why he’s always making things happen for himself, even if he doesn’t always have the quality to capitalise.
