Delph Week: Reo-Coker - Terrific Fabian will only get better


Nigel Reo-Coker believes "talented and tenacious" Fabian Delph will only get better after seeing him impress in the closing weeks of the season.

Reo-Coker is a big admirer of his former central midfield partner and believes "the world is his oyster" if he can keep clear of injury in the coming years ahead.

Reo-Coker thinks Delph's spirit on the field and humility off it will ensure a big future.

He said: "Fabian is so talented. He has an abundance of ability. The world is his oyster.

"He has so much quality but I don't think people realise how much.

"I just hope he can stay injury-free because I know he's had his fair of problems over the past few years. I hope he can have a good run in the team in the coming seasons.

"I hope he continues to mature too and get better and better.

"Off the pitch he's a fantastic, well-grounded lad. On the pitch I just love his tenacity. He has that old-school mentality about him.

"Football has changed so much now. It's hard to see players and say they have that old-school mentality and be able to stand next to them and think they have that ability to be a man - take a tackle, give a tackle and handle situations. Fabian is one of them.

"He has been tremendous in the closing weeks of the season. I am confident he can continue to progress and improve in the coming years too."
