Torino defender Cristian Ansaldi has praised teammate Ola Aina for the full-back’s work rate during the team’s pre-season sessions.
Ansaldi said Aina showed his impressive qualities, including the 23 year-old’s stamina and versatility.
The Nigerian International spent all of last season on loan at Fulham, and was a standout performance although the club was relegated from the Premier League.
His versatility has also helped the player standout, as he has been deployed as a LWB, LM, RB and frequently featured as a CB in a three-man defence.
Ansaldi believes Aina will improve under Torino’s new boss Ivan Juric and could be crucial to the team in the coming campaign.
