Ben Davies is a creative midfield player who joined Derby County in January 2011 after a successful spell at Notts County. Ben is most effective when used as a wide player. He has the ability to provide pinpoint crosses and is a good passer of the ball. Ben provides a further threat with his accurate free-kicks and he has the knack of scoring goals from outside the box. He was a regular in the Rams' squad after arriving at Pride Park and his strike against Leeds United in April earned him the club's Goal of the Season award. Ben made his Football League debut for Kidderminster Harriers more than a decade ago and then spent time at Chester and Shrewsbury Town before his move to Notts County.
Jose Mourinho has admitted he is in the worst spell of his managerial career.
