Danny Mills has been speaking to LUTV recently and has said that Luke Ayling is the player impressing him most at the moment.
The Whites have been excellent so far this season and it certainly seems safe to assume that we’re going to challenge for the promotion places for the rest of the campaign.
With that in mind, then, plenty of our players are impressing at the moment and it looks as though Luke Ayling has caught the eye of former player Mills.
Someone who knows how to be our full-back at the highest level, Ayling should be more than happy about what Mills has had to say:
“I think he’s a great player. I’ve said the last two or three seasons, since he’s arrived, that he’s technically fabulous. I think he could even play in a holding midfield role. Technically he’s very, very good. He likes to get forward, as you have to as a modern-day full back.”
Certainly, he is a modern full-back and I would argue that, actually, he’s the best in the league right now.
He gets forwards so well but is solid at the back and that makes him a real asset in Bielsa’s machine at the moment.
