“Miazga could struggle in Premier League” claims MLS player

by -

With Chelsea on the brink of signing American defender Matt Miazga from the MLS, an anonymous former team mate has said the player could really struggle in the Premier League.

“He is a really nice guy but pretty naive and he plays young.
“He looks big but he is soft, so hopefully he gets a little stronger and meaner otherwise he will be eaten alive in the Premier League. “He is a good kid so I am happy for him but he needs to be loaned out to get experience.”

Guus Hiddink gave his thoughts in a press conference this afternoon.

“Miazga is a promising player. We’re not rushing but he will be one of the squad members for the future. [He is a] young guy, stepping up to the national team. You can see what players are capable of in training so I think we will sign him permanently and he will stay with us for the rest of the season, not going on loan anywhere.”
