ITAL­IAN WAY OF DE­FEND­ING

Kick Off - - FACE TO FACE -

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.”
