I know very few like the Champion data ratings, but we will only fully see where he stands in the ratings at the end of this season when he has 2 years of data accumulated.
At the beginning of the year he was ranked 288th in the league, after 8 games he is 168th
At the beginning of the year he was 12th at the club, after 8 games he is 4th just 0.2 behind Zaka.
He must be progressively given more midfield time. Surely !
