He was 22 had made 120something league apps and was certainly bought by his former manager to play as a striker. You need to bone up on the greatest ever premier league striker.
In any case, one exceptional exception proves nothing.
Midfielders in midfield. Attackers in attack. Defenders in defence.
I can't believe people still haven't learnt that square pegs don't fit in round holes.
Sol Campbell rose through the system at Spurs as a striker. Then played left back. Finally ended up as a world class centre back.
