“That’s why I like the move of Fabio [Carvalho], for example. He plays a lot, is straight away decisive – together with Tyler [Morton]. Matt Newberry, our head of loans, he’s full of business this winter. He needs a holiday after this for sure!
“These boys all have potential, otherwise they would not be with us. But they need as well the right pathway. What you said, a good loan can do wonders.”
