Who is going to pay these numbers? So, I think he gets a phenomenal contract in a moment where he is a bit lucky to get it.”Is he good? Yes, he’s very good, in the same way I was saying that [Victor] Lindelof is good in some aspects and not as good in other aspects of the game, I could say the same about David.”He is much better on the line than he is coming out but I think in goal his agility, his technical level, is second to none.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img
