Wingers like Jesus Navas might be phased out in modern football – ESPN FC

I think that has been the case for the last few seasons. Especially when you can simply ask players to play on their “right” wing for a game here or their as Costa and Coman did for Bayern. Old-school wingers will still find a place but Navas is especially strange as he just doesn’t seem concerned with scoring at all. Other wingers put in similar situations in and around the box won’t just look for a cutback like Navas. He is one of the very few who just go to the byline and that’s it.
