Denis Suarez arrived on loan from Barcelona yesterday, and is in contention to face his old club Man City on Sunday.
Exactly where Unai Emery is planning to use him is a question fans have been pondering, and today we got our answer: everywhere.
As the head coach continues to tinker with his tactics from game to game, it appears as if the 25 year old will fit into his side in the wide areas, and also behind the striker/strikers depending on the system or formation we’re using.
“He can play right, left and he can play inside like a 10 player,” said Emery. “I will use him in all positions. He played left winger for us with Sevilla, with Villarreal more right winger and with Barcelona more inside.
“He adapts quickly and he is a player with quality. He can help us with his quality but also his ambition to do something important.
“It’s a good challenge for him to help us, and he can speak English which is important.
“He played at Manchester City when he was a young player. He played with Barcelona, in the Champions league with important players.
“His adaptation will be easier with us.”
It remains to be seen if he’ll start on Sunday at the Etihad for what is a daunting encounter with Man City, but the Spaniard certainly sounds pleased with the arrival of his compatriot, and we should see him make his debut at some stage.
