Can somebody explain to me what an "overflow winger" is?
I read today NKoudou is going on loan to Burnley. Mauricio Pochettino is said to prefer "winger-leaders" like Lamela and Eriksen to "overflow wingers".
The only reference to this term I have found online is when discussion Thierry Henry's previous position at Monaco when he played on the wing.
I guess "overflow-winger" describes a traditional winger, a role taken over by the wing-back in a lot of modern teams (like Tottenham). But I wonder if somebody out there knows for sure.
