Why thank you. I'll definitely keep that in mind. Pffft... The point of me doing so was to correct your belief that he's not a winger. He was always a winger not a CM!!! Now though, he sees himself as a "midfielder", and that to him is either CM or winger! End of!! And who cares if he was never a defender. He's a f**king winger! Dropping down to play full back or wing back isn't some crazy farcical move like trying to play a striker like Auba at CB! I'm sure you praise Saka what he's showing as a LB. If that was Maitland-Niles, I'm your you'd be praising him. But since he's average at best, you decide to sweep the last two years under rug as if it never happened. After the draw against Chelsea, Rio Ferdinand praised for Matinelli. What he said can easily be applied to Maitland-Niles. From 0:52-1:33, especially the last seven seconds. "You play where you can get into the team and then show your quality and then do you deserve to play there (favored position)."
