The first post in this thread covers what he was good at doing for Nantes. He did try and stick his oar in defensively and create from midfield. And starting to pop up on the edge of the opposition box generally playing the ball out to Kiko or Masina/Rose. Ranieri seems to have instilled confidence in him and letting him do what he does best in a free role in midfield always as a spare man. If he carries on like this he will be living up to his former transfer billing. Also looks a lot fitter as do several others.
