Ramalho - Why LD?


Recommended Posts

I assume the reason that Ramalho is always suggested for left defence is that is the position he played for Canada at the YWC 2005. Apparently coach Mitchel chose him as the starting LB for his squad. He has never played the position other than for Canada.

As an amateur in the NL he was an attacking mid fielder. For the KNVB District Selects he was a CM or LM and for FC Groningen he has always started as a CD or as RD in the youth system. He is a RD for the Reserves but to get him playing time the club also uses him as R, L and C midfielder coming on as a sub. He is competing for the RD position against a Jong Oranje player who is also the captain for the reserves. Ramalho is also Dual Nationality Dutch/Canadian same as Marcel de Jong. This information from a source associated with Groningen.
