...and had a phenomenal leap, like Cannavaro and Baresi
Seen two sources which say he is 1.82 and 1.83 m high which equates to 5ft 11 and 6ft and he is only 18 (19 in January so could possibly eke out another inch)
Much faster too.
1.82 m rounds to 6 ft, with the given precision, but 1.83 m is of course a better approximation. One cm more or less doesn't really matter (unless there's a VAR review). The world would be a better place if we all used SI-units.
He's taller than Baresi as well
So now we've established the teenaged Garcia isn't quite as good as prime Cannavaro, prime Puyol, or prime Baresi.
Things you can prove by posting pictures on the internet:-
1, The earth is flat
2, Eric Garcia is 6ft.
For all the hype I've seen about him, I've seen nothing to justify it.
Doesn't seem particularly fast, strong, good in the air and failed to do the basics of defending for the short time he was on tonight.
I hope he proves me wrong and it goes without saying that he needs more time but I can't see him ever breaking into this or any other Premier League team.
He’s a good passer and reads the game well, but he has a lot to learn if he’s going to become a regular here. I’ve said it before, but Harwood-Bellis is a better prospect.
Thankless task for him tonight.
