Birmingham City boss, Lee Bowyer, was pleased with Tahith Chong’s performance against Sheffield United.
Chong made a Man of the Match debut for Birmingham yesterday in their opening day win at Sheffield United.
Bowyer said: “Tahith is a young lad, sometimes people question young lads that come from big clubs when they drop down into the Championship or League One. People question their attitude but I have to say from day one he came through the door he has been excellent in possession and out of possession.
“I knew he would bring us something a little bit different.
“Again it was a gamble because I asked him to play in midfield and if they overpowered us in midfield, Gardner was a bit higher, Woods was lower so I had to trust him on the defensive side and I have seen enough of him to do be able to do that.
“When he made that run towards the end, 50 yards tracking someone, tracking someone sprinting back to help the team out – that will do for me.”
