(Video): The Chelsea fans claiming that Cucurella is misunderstood and misused

A Chelsea fan out there in the Twitterverse has picked out clips of his excellent performance against Dortmund, and he and others like him are creating a new view on the full back’s terrible debut season at Chelsea.

Their argument is that he was being used wrong – he’s a “heavy pressing” player not one for “tracking runners.”

If he’s used right, they seem to think he be a lot better. One thing you’d have to ask is why he’s not a pressing midfielder then, rather than a full back, where tracking runners is rather important.

You can see the footage in the clip embedded here and make your own mind up:

What do you make of it all? Bunk engagement searching, or is there really something to this?
