“Atlanta weren’t a possession side. They’d seize on a loose pass in that midfield area -- and he was at the center of that. Once he gets the ball and he starts driving forward, you
can’t stop him from behind. He has the talent to dribble past people and the awareness to bring people in. I do think Newcastle is the right fit for him. He won’t get disheartened by the
fact that he’s not going to have the ball all the time. He’s not really a playmaker, he’s more of a transition guy."
