Exclusive Interview: Alan Kennedy On The Season So Far
TAK: Players seem to have grown and developed on the pitch this season. Is there anyone who has really impressed you and caught your eye?
Alan Kennedy : Yes, there have been several that have caught my eye. Jon Flanagan has come into the team. For me, he does very very well at the left back role rather than the right back role. I know he started his career at right back but I think he’s a better left back. Obviously we have obviously missed Enrique from that point of view but I think Jon Flanagan has done very well in that area. He looks comfortable, he has supported and has scored goals as well which is a bit of a bonus. He has made a very telling contribution.
I think Coutinho is growing in stature all the time. I think he is slowly developing into a player who can play that killer ball to Suarez and to the likes of Sturridge.
So yes, standout Flanagan and Coutinho have been exceptional.
