    There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can hinder the firm resolve of a determined individual. Keep going sonny…

    Very poor work rate. Let me tell you about Ngolo Kante for a defensive midfielder who chips in with a goal once in a blue moon. His first point of call is getting back the ball before you blink. he moves with the same traction on both feet, hence is superb at blocking shots with both feet. nothing goes through his legs because his mind is always ahead of the attacking player. And he masters the defensive shape of the team. He may evolve his game but he is already the best in the world with that approach. He has been doing the same thing all his life. He is a winner. Who are you my friend? Are a ball control wizard like Patrick Viera. Luka Modrich will say i am a little bit like Pavel Nedved.
