Trent is still learning the full back position, people can go on about his attacking play, but his defensive work still leaves a lot to be desired. Bale got moved because he is another one that was great going forward, but actually sh*t at the art of defending.
Yeah but I think Trent will be better in time at defending and will become the best in his position for many years. Bale always caught my eye as an attacking player even when he was being slated, but I dont think Trent would be the goal threat of Bale.
We lose something in the team when Trent isnt at right back and I wouldn't move him from there for the rest of his career to be honest. The damage he does at full back is immense and then we still keep 3 great forwards on as well as him.
I wouldn't for example advocate putting him in the forward 3 if one of the current 3 were to leave like Bale was able to do at Spurs.
To me he is a full back who thrives in his position.
