He told Ben Foster’s podcast: (He’s) rapid. But rapid with a brain.

‘If he gets a little bit more physical. He’s still a kid and he’s rapid, and his finishing is frightening.

‘He’s got levels to go as well. His finishing is very good, but can get better. His right foot, it needs improvement… it’s very good at the moment, but he can get to that next level.’
