He enthused: "Huge talent. I think tactically Frank has got an A+ today because the pace on the counter attack from the Lille front men was there for all to see.
"That was the best defender on the pitch actually setting up the first goal.
"Everything he did today defensively I thought he was perfect.
"His tenacity, his anticipation, his willingness to step out and make quick decisions to intercept.
"He notices the danger, he's running past people to get back to make an effort for his team. That's what you want to see from young players.
"The best bit is one-v-one. He's saying, 'Go on, you try and run past me.' That's what you want from your centre-half."
