He’s Amongst The Fastest – National Team Coach Makes Bold Claim On Burnley Star

Domenico Tedesco, the manager of Belgium, has stated that Ameen Al-Dakhil of Burnley is one of the Premier League’s fastest center-backs.

The 21-year-old defender joined Vincent Kompany’s team in January on a three-and-a-half-year contract from Belgian club Sint-Truiden.

The Clarets are struggling in the Premier League, but Kompany has showed his faith in Al-Dakhil by giving him ten league starts thus far.

Tedesco believes that Al-Dakhil has excellent speed and that his speed may compensate for his positional and defensive mistakes.

The Belgian manager regards Al-Dakhil as one of the Premier League’s fastest central defenders.

“Al-Dakhil was very good”, Tedesco was quoted as saying by Belgian outlet Het Nieuwsblad when asked about the Clarets defender’s display for Belgium.

“He is a fast player; he is in the top three fastest defenders in the Premier League.

“That is why he can absorb incorrect positional play on his part well.

“He is so fast that he can correct mistakes.”

Due to an injury, Al-Dakhil has missed the Clarets’ last two games, and Kompany has opted for Dara O’Shea and Jordan Beyer in the central defensive duties.

It remains to be seen whether he will be available to play against West Ham in the Premier League on November 25th.
