In One play


We know, we know, that clip up above is more than one play. But by watching just a few seconds of the video, you can get a pretty strong idea of how Erik Palmer-Brown plays. He’s a capable passer and has solid defensive mobility that allows him to slide over and snuff out opposition attacks. After leaving Sporting Kansas City and spending some time on loan with Porto, Palmer-Brown became a part of Manchester City’s loan army. While under contract in England, Palmer-Brown played in Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, and France. In 2022, the center back signed a permanent deal with Troyes to stay in Ligue 1.
