No room for debate

The centre back added that “there should be no debates concerning Bojan’s situation” as the striker “is working hard every day to win his place and to get more time on the pitch … it is the boss who has to pick the players that are on form or the most appropriate for each match”. He also said he feels comfortable with the defensive tactics being employed as “they allow an extra man to go up and join the attack”.
