Jeffrey Schlupp praised by Leicester City team-mate Liam Moore

Moore has patted Schlupp on the back due to the latter’s ability to settle well in his new defensive position

Leicester City player, Liam Moore is full of praise for Ghanaian international, Jeffrey Schlupp for his versatility.

Schlupp, who is naturally an attacker, has been used mostly in the left-back role this season. 

Moore is in awe of the 21-year-old who has settled well in his new position.

“I’m always going to be biased but I’m sure any Leicester fan will agree Schlupp is playing some great football right now. He looks so comfortable as a left-back.

“Everyone forgets last season was the first time ever he played in that position – he’s probably not even made double figures there yet, but he’s so composed and playing some really good football, Moore told the club’s official website.

“You look at the quality of someone like Konch, who is looking to get back into the team, but Jeff is making it hard for the gaffer to put him back in.  That is a huge pat on the back to say how well he is doing right now,” he added.

Schlupp has one Ghana cap to his credit after making his debut in November, 2011.
