Big, strong, quick, powerful. Steve Bruce in his press conference today on the Arrival Of Axel Tuanzebe. What Bruce likes about him is he can play all sorts of positions. Midfield, anywhere at the back and so he says Villa are lucky to have a player of that quality.
And when asked what he will bring to the squad, Bruce said “Pace, athleticism. A desire. He`s got a big appetite for the game,” going on to predict a massive future for Axel at Manchester United. Bruce says he is thankful to Jose for letting him come here.
Bruce also says he brings competition for places and has a fair idea of where he will want to play Axel. Going to be fascinating isn`t it? Bruce confirms he will be involved Tuesday night and confirms ‘he has come here to play`. He`s not sure yet, whether he will start or not.
Certainly sounds like he`s made an agreement with Jose that the player will feature, if not, as I said in the the Arrival Of Axel Tuanzebe. Where will he fit in? I wouldn`t think that Manchester United would have allowed him to come to us. There would be no point swapping one bench for another would there?
