‘That’s Exactly What I Brought Him To Do’: Frank Lampard On Van de Beek After Everton Brilliant Outing

“I’m a big admirer of him as a player and I think he can do both roles for us. He played as one of two midfield players today and I know he’s got the talent to link and get us through the lines of the pitch with his passing, and he also has the work ethic needed in that role.”
