I know, mate- can't wait to see him as well! I think Jurgen would have chosen Shaq as our attacking mid if he had the legs (and I don't mean longer legs, ha), but I think he would get tired. Don't get wrong, he would be up for it and do some lovely stuff, but, unfortunately, he would get subbed eventually. You know, Fabhino is a technical player (not very skillful, but technical), but people will put players in a box. Jurgen, on the hand, loves the idea of total football- that's why keepers have evolved into sweeper keepers, because the modern game requires you to assume more responsibility than your shirt number suggests.Well looking at the last few years that we've had jurgen - all 3 midfielders play in all 3 positions, as do the front 3. I suppose he teaches them the roles and duties in each position, and then finds what is best for the team. Mane was regularly playing on the right, before Salah came etc - and they have switched positions in some games too.
But Fabinho has played right back, centre back and holding midfield (with previous club and Brazil)..... will be good to see him though.
