Interesting...He's in the Premier League squad as well.
But not in the CL squad I think. And I don't think he's qualified for the youth exception?
I'd love to know what's going on with this guy. Looked really talented last preseason to the point that I wouldn't have been shocked to see him stay with the team but between the the terrible loan (which may or may not have even been his fault) and the increased competition at his position this year I don't see much chance for him. Maybe a January loan? No clue.
Maybe he could fill in at left wingback?
I think he'd be far more suited to it than Sané anyway.
Always laugh at compilations like that. Literally four mins of a guy doing five yard passes.
Congratulation @Dax777 , Pep share some of your thoughts
This is what he said when he was speaking about who can cover for Mendy :
“We have alternatives, Delph, Fernandinho, Zinchenko. We will see. Zinchenko is a good player, but we don’t have room in the Champions League for him at the moment.
Question for those more knowledgeable than me.
What is Zinchenko's protected position moving forward? He remains a mystery to me. I remember when we signed him he was touted as the best youngster in Ukraine, but then he somewhat underwhelmed at PSV and looked off to Italy over the summer?
So now that he's in the squad, do we have an idea of what's in store for him? Is he a LB/LWB? Midfielder? Maybe a silver lining of the Mendy situation is we'll see him in action soon.
All 3 players Pep mentioned are the very same 3 I've been ridiculed over for suggesting they could play leftback. :)
Its fun that one of the very best footballing minds of our generation sees the very same projected positional qualities I see in certain players.
Hope Zinchenko starts v Wolves in the cup, if not before.
