Atalanta BC (h) Friendly
The tenacity of Ryan Fraser saw him gain possession of the ball from Nadir
Zortea on the United left and win a corner off the same opponent.
Eddie Howe said:
"I was very
pleased with the game and the high quality of it.
On Elliot Anderson:
"At the moment, it certainly looks like he’s going to stay with us, because of how he’s performing.
"His performance today was very
good. I thought he was very, very good defensively today, very good
tactically to understand his position, but also technically in tight
areas, really quick feet.
"For me, during pre-season, he’s got better and better. So great signs for him.
“I knew his quality and last year we couldn’t give him the opportunity - now he has returned a better player from Bristol Rovers.”
