ITALIAN WAY OF DEFENDING
Clayton Daniels has always modelled his game on two defenders that he watched growing up.
“When I was a kid, I always looked at how the centrebacks played and for me my two choices were the Italians Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Nesta. They were amazing in what they did. Maldini was a good reader of the game and Nesta was firm in the tackle and had speed. Nesta was hardcore and could deal with different types of strikers.”
