If they are here to play Lcb/LB then they are not starting ahead of VVD and Robertson.They're not cover though. How much has Lovren and Matip played between them? With a top CB around he would play loads. Gomez misses games and covers RB. If it was someone like Romagnoli you might find he could play pretty much every game appropriate taking into account missed games and rest. We really need to get past a starting 11 and cover players. It's not the reality anymore.
Gomez is our starter at RcB. The incoming player has to be convinced that there will be a chance to dislodge him otherwise again he will be cover. Its not me you or the club have to convince about the importance of cover - its the incoming player who has a firm idea as to where he should be in the pecking order.
