  1. Looks like the next flop. He is chubby, he can’t dribble, no pace, no vision, some stamina. The romanian Man would have been a better option.

    1. I would have preferred Dennis Man as well as he knows Italy and Serie A; however, let’s not count Cabral out yet – need to wait until he touches the pitch before we make a decision on him.
