I don’t think he’d be brought in for that. The slow play at the back is a deliberate RDZ ploy.LB cover and CB , seems sensible.
No idea what he plays like but I do think we could be quicker at the back with the ball , zip it around a bit more and push with pace when gaps appear. We are good but deffo an area we can improve. If he is a RDZ player then assume he fits this type
