    Meanwhile,last Saturday, Tagliafico with another assist and man of the match performance against Quilmes, even though the game ended in a draw. By the way, he was also deployed as a left-side centre-back in a three man defence, 3-5-2 which shows his versatility. When will Bauza notice I wonder? The guy can attack and defend. Best left-back in Argentine Primera by far.

      For me he is Nicolas “Braveheart” Tagliafico.
