Absolutely. Just defending is not enough in midfield. He has to offer more. Right now he is a solid player we completely overpaid for and to justify this our fans go crazy for every tackle he makesIt’s one of the things many seem to be overlooking. The over reliance on Ødegaard as our main and only really creative outlet will hinder us at a point but I feel in order for this to work then Declan Rice has to develop and show us the passes between the lines that Jorginho and Partey have done in our system when they’re playing in the 6 role to help with transitions otherwise it would be a bit of a waste.
