Nathan Redmond finally a star?
Considered a prodigy since his debut in Birmingham in August 2010, Nathan Redmond is currently at the top of the first years of his career. All thanks to the ideas of Claude Puel, new Southampton French manager.
Nathan Redmond has always been one step ahead. That day, certainly more than another. Basically, this is what often makes the difference. After the draw conceded by the new Manchester City from Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium on October 23rd against Southampton (1-1), the discussions of the week had turned that around one subject. Is Manchester City is in crisis? What to think of Claudio Bravo? And Guardiola, has he still solutions to put Man City in place after six consecutive games without success?
In Manchester, however, Nathan Redmond had again carved his name in the archive. History will record that on October, 23rd of 2016 at the stroke of 3pm, made a mark. Nathan Redmond is finally shining.
Historically, Nathan Redmond is considered a miracle and we have almost forgotten that he was only twenty-two. Twenty-two years old and already five seasons at the professional level, he is explosive and had an early start to his home of Birmingham, where he was quickly spotted by Birmingham City rather than Aston Villa (which his mother was a supporter of), and then confirmed his potential with Norwich between the Premier League and the Championship.
His previous teachers and coaches saw him as a Aaron Lennon type of player.
Claude Puel uses Nathan Redmond but more like a winger rather than a striker: “The coach told me right away that he did not play with profiles of great strikers in his system. So he told me he wanted me to play, grow, and told me that I had the potential to become a winger scorer. It was either me I adapted and learned this new role, or I was going to sit on the bench” explained Nathan Redmond a few weeks ago.
In the English press, what do they say? Nathan Redmond started ten league games this season and became indisputable.
This season Southampton has suffered, but today, Southampton FC scores and results prove it is getting much better in the English Premier League. Claude Puel perfectly understood the possibilities a player like Nathan Redmond can bring with his speed and skills. Everything goes fast for a guy whose name is already circulating for integrating a national team. Redmond is now far from Birmingham, no longer lives at home, wants to assume its new status in the heart of a rise without limit.Inter may be the next victim.
