Is Matej Vydra the Championship's best #10?

Posted by C S on

Gary Rowett has again labelled Derby's man-of-the-moment Matej Vydra as the best No.10 in the Championship.

Vydra's hat trick gave Derby a 3-0 victory at Middlesbrough on Saturday and he took his tally to 12 goals in only 13 starts this season.

The Rams' record signing is looking very much at home playing behind striker David Nugent in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

And Vydra's form is delighting Rowett, who likes his teams to have a No.10.

"I just love that position," Rowett said.

"You can change everything from that '10' position. You can put another midfielder in there, you can put in someone with pace to run in behind, you can put a link player in there."

"I've said it before, I think he's the best '10' in the league - he can finish off his left foot, he can finish off his right foot.

"He's got everything, really, apart from being a bit tougher defensively but if he had those attributes, he'd be worth £40-£50m and playing in the Premier League!"
