Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
Peter should be commended for his attitude and work rate.  It appears he spent a lot of time in a ďmarking-backĒ role in the past, because his best qualities were sticking close to an attacking player and preventing him from getting the ball or getting shots off.  In the role of a right back, Peter struggled to handle the tactical movement and positioning.  Also, he always wanted to step in and tackle the attacking player to try and win the ball.  There are moments in the game where he has to recognize when to contain the player or delay the attack.  He must keep playing/watching video to develop an awareness of what the game is calling for in terms of tackling/waiting.  As for his future in the game, Peter has a ways to go to make a professional team.  He would be best served to start at the lowest level; heís way behind in his technique with the ball.  There is always a place for players who are committed to defending, and Peter has that quality.  He has to keep learning and playing more often to improve with the ball and tactically.
