Nathan Redmond is a quite different for the breed of modern-day footballer.
Yes he’s got the money, the wealth and the fame but there is a real charm about the former Birmingham City youngster.
He’s extremely good at what he does and he has a big season ahead of him, after an eight-figure transfer to Southampton earlier this summer. He’ll be a massive loss for Norwich City but following their relegation, it was clear to see he is more than good enough to play in the Premier league.
And against Watford last weekend, we saw the pacy winger score a goal and be a part of everything good Claude Puel’s team did going forward.
So with the future looking extremely bright for the 22-year-old, just how good can he be this season?
Here’s THREE reasons why he could use the season as a springboard to become a future England superstar…
No media controversies, no Twitter outbursts and certainly no on-the-field dramas- Nathan Redmond really is your model footballer. He’s the type of young man that can inspire a new generation of players and he’s a real credit to his club and his family.
Whilst some youngsters are intent on splashing their mega-high wages, we’ve never heard a peep out of Redmond which suggests he can go for. Modesty is a fantastic trait, whatever your discipline.
With Raheem Sterling have a Euros to forget, there’s real optimism that Nathan Redmond can throw his name in the hat for the next major tournament if he can keep performing.
England have so much choice when it comes to the flanks- Young, Townsend, Sterling, Rashford, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain. But they all seem stagnant, not performing to their absolute best.
Meanwhile Redmond is writing the headlines on the South Coast and is becoming a better player week-after-week.
Domestically, we’ve some great stuff from Nathan Redmond over the past few years at both Norwich City and at Birmingham, when he burst onto the scene aged just 16-years-old.
He’s maintained that desire to run at players and give full-backs hell, which is arguably the biggest part of his game. But his ability to cross the ball, play passes and get back and defend is also excellent too.
Redmond is turning into a really well-rounded player and we can see why headlines are already being written about him, even at this early stage in his career.
