He is, in the centre of a back 3, with pace either side he would be a monster

No he isn’t. Having two guys with pace in either side of him doesn’t change the fact he can’t defend guys one in one, can’t read the play to understand where the threats are, often loses opposition players around him giving them free shots on goal, is clumsy in tackles and couldn’t make a pass to save his life.

He is flat out shit. Whether in a back 3, back 4, back 5 or back 10.

Actually not too bad in a back 6. Did well in the few games we had Sissoko and Hojbjerg dropping into the defensive line and lessening the space our cb's were forced to defend.

Drawback to this is that you limit yourself to a handful of attacking situations in a game.
