I agree He is pretty poor aerially a prerequisite for a CB.
I wouldn't be sure that being "Poor aerially" is a prerequisite for a Centre Half mate. 😊
Joking aside, I get what you meant but...
"Poor aerially"? Is he really? Hmm...
Henderson (according to the offal) has won 70.6% of all his aerial duels.
Klavan and Gomez (the armchair aide's alternative to Lovren) - 55.2% & 50%, respectively. [Emre Can - only 47.1% btw]
Strangely enough Lovren scores 71.8% and, as you would expect, Matip scores highest with a whopping 84.4%.
Just for some perspective; Virgil van Dijk yeah... that
Virgil van Dijk scores 67.4%. 😕
As ever; people's perceptions of Jordan tend to cloud their judgement. Thankfully a lot of what folk say out loud, in the hope it's right, can be checked. 👍
