When we signed him I was excited. We needed a left side back up to Nacho and Kolsianc fitted the bill precisely.
Able to play in midfield but a specialist full back, voted into the Bundesliga Team of the Season,signing on a free – it seemed to good to be true and on current form it was TGTBT.
He started well, setting up a couple of goals and working well defensively. I thought he would be taking the shirt from Nacho but injury has ruined his AFC career. It was the same at Schalke where he missed time with knee knack. Sead appears to be lacking in confidence and direction. Against Wolves he was dreadful.
Good young LB’s are in much demand, there are few around, hence the stupid money talked about for the Chilwell etc. The demands of the position have developed to the point where one has be blessed with the lungs of a marathon runner, the strength of a boxer and the crossing ability of Georgie Armstrong.
Nicknamed the Wardrobe, I was hoping for something from Heals, I would have accepted a top of the range one from IKEA but instead it appears we have have a chipboard self-assembly from Homebase.
Either Sead must improve or he will be skipped.
