Rutten: “All-round midfielder”

“He is dynamic and athletic all-round midfielder”, told PSV´s head coach Fred Rutten PSV TV. “He is a versatile player, who can play an anchor role in midfield. We’ve been monitoring Hutchinson closely this season, ever since we met FC Copenhagen in the Europa League campaign”, said Rutten, when asked for a first reaction.
