Finally, being in the World Cup: “There is a lot of competition in his position and there were times when his No.10 profile did not fit our system. However, he plays very well and we like the fact that he finds spaces where no player is up front. Not many players do that today. In addition, he has a great free kick kick and can score goals from a distance. It’s an advantage that many of our players don’t have, playing against low-mass teams.”
Esst plays very well. Look for spaces where you don’t exist and there aren’t many players who do that today
