“Today’s game has a lot of tactics and can be a bit over thought but this manager simplifies football for me and, in my opinion, is making me a better player. Whether I’ve had the best or worst training session, he always talks to me at the end.

He is keeping me on my toes and I am always improving, which is what I love to do,” says Anthony Gordon. [EFC]
