â€śWhat people often donâ€™t take on board about Fabrice is that is 21 years old; he is only a young lad,â€ť said the Welshman.
â€śPlayers progress at different rates. We saw Gary Cahill come in having not played a lot of Premier League games and take to it like a duck to water. He got into the side and, to the delight of everyone here, into the England set up this summer.
â€śFabrice has played a lot of football in his young career and the manager has shown a great deal of faith in him. He has been allowed to make his own mistakes and gain experience.
â€śItâ€™s well documented, especially with younger players, that everything doesnâ€™t happen for them from day one when they move to a new club.
â€śIt is usual to see them calm down in their second season and I think that will happen with Fabrice.â€ť
