Young football players

Post by Vick » 08 Apr 2019, 20:48

I would like to have your opinion.
How would you explain if a 11 year old footballer who plays as an attacker ..scores goals ...and uses both legs equally well .... is placed lately as a left back??
Thanks

The fullback position is somewhat similar to a forward since both require a lot of speed.
There are many pro fullbacks who started out as attackers in their youth.
If you are still 11 years old, then I wouldn't make too much of it.
It's perfectly normal to switch positions as you get older.
