I’m in two minds with him, he actually could be and i’m hoping he becomes the power midfielder we are after.
He attracts the ball, he is powerful, he is quick. He is very much in the Danger/Dusty mould I believe, and even those 2 took 4-5 years to develop a midfielders tank. So there’s still hope.
I also think he could be as good as Hurley and Rance and own one of the key tall spots. Similar body shapes albeit still very much a boy, but once he gets that man’s body he will destroy opponents.
What I don’t want is Francis to become a swingman utility type, I think he will get lost like that.
