Speaking to reporters he said, “Moses is more suitable for playing wing back than like a winger or a full back, I think. I don’t know [if they have a future]. They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different.”

Other players mentioned in the report include Eintracht Frankfurt‘s Croatia star Ante Rebic and AS Roma’s Cengiz ünder.
