What OGS has Said

Jimmy Garner is a Michael Carrick, but 20 years younger, I’m sure he’ll do well and Chongy will be taking people on if he comes on. They’re ready, the kids, it’s a hard if you’re a defender coming as a 16 or 17-year old but as an attacker you just go out there and express yourself, and there is your chance. They can win you the game not lose it for you.”

The English lad is known for his composed passing and work-rate in front of the defensive line.
