Daniel Farke: Marshall's versatility makes him a great signing

29 June 2018

Daniel Farke is delighted to have signed a player in Ben Marshall who can occupy a number of different positions.

Marshall has shown previously he can play as a full-back or winger on either side and Farke says his versatility will benefit City immensely.

Speaking to, Farke said: "Ben is a very versatile player. He can play on the right and left side of defence and midfield.

"When he plays on the left, he likes to cut in on his strong right foot. This helps him be a threat close to the opponents box.

"Also his set-pieces are really good. In addition to that, he's a really nice guy.

"Whoever I spoke to - whether it was players, coaches or agents - praised his character. We're very pleased to have him."

Marshall has racked up plenty of appearances at this level and Farke is delighted to acquire a player of his level of experience.

"We're always looking for a balance," he added. "We have some experienced lads like Alex Tettey, Timm Klose and Grant Hanley but then we have some really young lads.

"It's also good to have a homegrown player right now with this experience in a really good age. It's a very good addition to our squad."
