Speaking about Botman he said;

“I do, yeah (think we’d be higher in the table,” Moyes muses. “In the opening four or five games of the season, we had no centre-halves with Craig Dawson injured, with Angelo Ogbonna not back from the cruciate (injury). We were really toiling at the start of the season.”

“I’ve got to say I compare (Aguerd) a lot to Botman. Botman and Aguerd, I thought, were probably the two best left footed centre-backs in France.”

Chelsea, just last month, snapped up another talented southpaw who made his name on the other side of the Channel. But Benoit Badiashile, a £35 million addition from Monaco, would have to be content with bronze in Moyes’ personal rankings; Aguerd and Botman scrapping over gold.

“Obviously there’s the boy who has gone to Chelsea, and there’s a few others. But they (Botman and Aguerd) were in a similar category,” the Scot adds.

“(Aguerd) has only played four or five Premier League games. It’s been a huge miss, and you can see what (his return) has done to us. If you look at our results since he has come into the team, it has been a big, big difference to us.”
