Udinese coach Andrea Sottil has hinted at shifting Jordan Zemura
to a new position after impressing in their pre-season friendly
match against Pafos.
Sottil played the Zimbabwean left-back on the right wing in the
match over the weekend.
The shift was necessitated by the absence of Kingsley Ehizibue, who
is nursing a long-term injury.
Speaking after the friendly match, the gaffer was impressed by the
Warriors international’s performance.
He said, as quoted on the Udinese’s official website: “Zemura
arrived to play on the left, today (on Saturday) I tried him on the
right and, I think he did well. With the foot reversed, it can be very
annoying for the opposing defences.”
The Warriors international joined the Serie A club this month on a
four-year contract after leaving Bournemouth at the end of his
contract in June.
The transfer followed after after he signed a pre-contract agreement
with the Italian side in March.
The pre-contract talks, however, was seen by the Cherries as a
betrayal and the EPL side froze him out for the rest of the season.
