A post more about rotation than left back but maybe we don't need one.
I've been saying we need a new left back for a while but shouldn't 3 players be enough to cover 2 full back positions?
Week 1- walker and cancelo
Week 2 - walker and zinchenko
Week 3 - Cancelo and zinchenko
I know there are injuries and tactics to consider but in theory, 3 players for 2 positions would mean each player playing 67% of games. That should give them enough rest to perform at their best when needed.
The lad is a serious talent but has only just got into the EDS give it time, in Zinchenko we have a fabulous left back but not a left wing back, we could use Cancelo but one injury would exposes us, still like you i am glad Mendy is not around as Pep would play him.When I watched the youth team towards end of last season a left back called Juan Larios stood out to me he looked class for a young lad .. anyone who has seen more of him than I have do you think he will get some minutes in the cup etc or is he miles off in his development ?
And for what it’s worth I honestly think we are stronger for not having mendy around an absolute car crash of a player who was targeted at every opportunity
