“I don’t think Trent has been poor enough to be left out,” Matteo said to Stadium Astro, via TeamTalk.
“Neco Williams is a good young player and he’s had some opportunities. He will get more opportunities, but Trent is a good player. It’s just a conversation about his positional play.
“I think Trent is probably one of the best full-backs in world football – the awards he has won and everything he has achieved. But, I still think there is a place for him to improve on his defending.
“If that is where you are going to play, as a right-back, then you have to be able to defend as well.”
