O'Brien enjoying versatile role

Young forward Aiden pays tribute to coaching staff

Millwall youngster Aiden O'Brien says the club's coaching staff have helped him to add versatility to his game.

The 21-year-old has impressed in his two recent first team appearances, during which he played out wide and through the middle, and Aiden believes the help he is receiving on the training ground has been key to an improvement in his all-round game.

"I always thought I was an out and out striker but the coaching staff have made me believe that I can play in any of the forward positions," he said.

"Throughout my career, especially when I was a lot younger, I was always a number nine but now, as I get on the ball more, I can be effective getting down the wings or in behind the striker.

"I've been moved around those front four positions a lot recently and that is suiting me really well."
