That is why he can help us to be more competitive. He can do a good job. couple with Hlinason, since they are complementary players: Tryggvi is deeper and Thompson can give us a new record when it comes to playing the direct block, where we are getting little benefit “, analyzed Zaragoza coach Jaume Ponsarnau.
