He's a European Champion to be fair, and he keeps getting picked first choice for a strong international team in a key area.Not going to pretend I watch him domestically but he's clearly a good player and has a lot going for him. It's tough to judge any midfielders against Spain.
Whether or not he has attributes we are not giving him credit for, what was clear, is he isn't that mobile, ball hungry, demand ball from defense, dictate play with a range of precision passing type that we need.
Greece won the European championship and I'd say pretty much all there squad was pretty crap to decent at best
The Leicester of Europe
In fairness, Leicester played with some panache and pace that season. Greece won that championship playing the Moyes way.
In possesion he's good as he moves the ball on quickly and has a decent range of passing, but tonight was exactly the same as any other game i've seen him play out of possession - if he's up against a team thats either quick or moves the ball quickly then he can't get close enough to be effective. Its Gareth Barry all over again.
If they were playing the Moyes way they’d have bottled it in the semi.
Gareth Barry wasn't blessed with pace but did his DM role well, this guy looks even slower though, if we are to implement a pressing style next season I fail to see where he fits in.
