    • WhoScored also had him as the highest rated player for Levante. He’s becoming a solid defender in a top tier league. Just a year too late

  1. Werder Bremen did spotlights on both AJ and Sargent on their twitter account. AJ’s was on their English Language website so they might have been promoting their American but the manager seemed pleased with how he’s playing. Had to run Sargents interview thru google translate.

  2. Maki Tall had a brace for Tours today, sure it was against a 4th division side and his club is 15 pts below the relegation line with 19 matches to play, but hey two goals!!!!!

  3. Emo just said in an interview that the deflection didn’t not come off him, haven’t seen the video though.
