(till he plays for us that is.. :i am genuinely amused: )
He is a defenders nightmare ...when fit and firing....got the added bonus with him of the
aerial threat as well...
Seems to me he got a bit muscle bound....which is no good for a player,could be part of
all the muscle/groin based injuries he has..(had the rib thing which is separate)
Looks like Peller is very much after wide players,and has Holland to take into account as well....
Hope he stays....but looks like he would be a squad player only,not a starter,don't think he
will be happy with that,so will be on his way I reckon..
Personally if he's fit,I wouldn't be looking at replacing him.....very important to us and prob
starts for me...
Funny you compare him to Moses, whose career went to another level when he was deployed as a rwb in a 3-5-2, as that's exactly what Antonio is built for. He needs to develop the defensive traits to go with existing maurading attacking ones, while being fit enough to play 90m. My feeling is that he won't adapt to that role as he now considers himself an attacking winger & therefore a waste in a system that already has ; Arnie & Chicha up front & potentially Yarmalenko & Anderson to join.
Therefore we should probably sell him.
