Read some old forum posts over the last two years and some people did like him being used as a right winger. Who knows if they were right, but they said he looked great at RW at times.  

 

Maybe this system will suit him.

Veron's done anyway. If it's not Bosetti, they need to bring in someone else that Marsch believes in.

It would be nice to see a CB come in due to that position being a more pressing need but hopefully this guy can bring some pace and offensive ability.

Good that they get to see him with the squad him early and can evaluate next steps after a week of training if there is a fit.  Surprised they announced him given all the discovery player nonsense rules etc.  Age wise fits what we should be looking for and plays one of the positions we need help with.

At best, maybe he has some spirit and becomes a fan favorite. It's not like this fanbase hasn't worshipped diminuitive strikers before:

Seems redundant to Gulbrandsen

 

Gulbrandsen either is going to do really well and will have a home back at Salzburg, or only okay, and will return to Salzburg to be cut.  Pretty sure he's gone either way.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

He might have appeal for some fans already:

On Seeing Red Daily today, Marsch said he sees Bosetti as a wide player...

According to Transfermarkt, Bosetti's contract expires at the end of June.  Young, versatile forward that came up from a youth academy in France. I didn't realize that he played out wide as well - the more I hear about this, the more interested I am.

 

Since we will not be paying a transfer fee (presumably), I wonder if he will come here for a non-DP contract - kind of a way to jump start his career.
