Dean Saunders On Armand Gnanduillet

After Armand Gnanduillet signed a new contract to stay with the Spireites, manager Dean Saunders spoke about the striker and what he hopes to get from the striker in the new season.

Gnanduillet had a stop-start campaign in 2014/15, scoring twice for the Spireites as well as having loan spells away at Tranmere Rovers and Oxford United in League Two.

However, Saunders feels he can get the best out of the 23-year-old: "I think I can help him and guide him in the right direction. He's got all the tools, as all the supporters have seen, he can do most things and on his day he can be a handful for anybody. 

"I just need to guide him into the right places on the pitch and where he should be, and give him some fire in his belly that makes him want to do it without me telling him anything.

"I can coach him, get him into the right spots and hopefully he's the big powerful striker we'll need in certain games."

With fellow striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake also joining the club in the last seven days, Saunders thinks that he is getting a group of players together who will be able to perform in a number of different ways.

He said: "We've got to be able to do everything and play two or three formations. I'll look at the opposition and see where their weaknesses are and then we'll work a system around that.

"Really you should work your system around the players you've got, not the other way round, where you're asking players to do things they can't do."
