As I said, I expect more “offensively” from a wing back, and more “defensively” from a fullback.
There was a reason why you push your 2 full backs upward to make them wing back… because they are supposed to get into the offensive zone and join the “attack” more often than a fullback.
I didn’t mean fullback won’t attack. I just meant wingback would attack more naturally. So they need better offensive skill sets.
I used Cafu and Carlos as examples because they demonstrated what a wingback would do… had a lot of touches (also related to the team tactics… if the team is set up to attack in the middle, that’s another story)… had the abilities to “contribute” offensively, executed some give and go, a lot of overlaps and finished off by a nice cross/pass; or even a decent shot on goal. Not just running up and down on the flanks and be “just another player on the field”.
I had no intention to compare Bellerin to them, and did not expect him to reach their levels.
From what I observed… Bellerin wasn’t really playing as a wingback at all. He and Kola are more like wide players that we expect from the 4-2-3-1 to me.
Anyway I agree most of what you said…
