Garcia's praise as Ince adapts to new role
Rohan Ince has improved his chances of a successful career by embracing a new position.
That is the view of Oscar Garcia on what he has seen in the past two months.
The 20-year-old former Chelsea youngster has been handed his big chance in a deep-lying midfield role during Liam Bridcutt's injury-enforced absence.
Ince admits he was a centre-back who could also play as an advanced midfielder during his days at Chelsea.
But he has been operating somewhere between those two areas since arriving on the South Coast earlier this year and Oscar says it suits him.
“For me he is a player who will have a better professional career as a midfielder than as a defender,” Albion's head coach said.
“I think the matches he has played there have been of a decent standard.
“He positions himself well, he is very alert to second balls, he doesn't lose possession, he can move the ball quickly.
“I think these are all physical and technical characteristics that are better suited to the midfield role.
“Especially in this type of league - but also in the way we play.”
