He’s a man, a young man, a very serious full-back, also a player with a future.”“His speed is a huge asset”Meanwhile, the Daily Mail wrote a scouting article about Lavinier in February 2021.“Lavinier primarily plays as a right-back,” began the article. “And his speed is a huge asset, but his versatility also stands out.“He’s able to play anywhere along the back four and has occasionally featured at left-back while turning out for Tottenham.“Lavinier loves to get forward and is very direct – often looking up and aiming to ping balls into the area, but he’s an equally competent defender. “He doesn’t mind getting stuck into a tackle, and also has the confidence to play his way out of danger if the situation allows.” Have something to tell us about this article?
