Manager’s Quote: “I think he showed a bit of quality. We brought him on because Jordan Cousiins and Yoni Buyens had a yellow card and I was worried they would get a second yellow and leave us with 10 men. I think Coquelin showed that he is a good player and his work ethic is very good. That’s very important and he can only grow once he gets to know the boys and the system we want to play.”
