I'd rather give him 2-3 years to develop at that level. Playing with and learning from Marincin should be great for his development
You're spot on that Gernat's game lacks physicality. From what I've seen, Marincin has more of a physical side to his game, irregardless of the year he has on Gernat. I'd like to think he'll grow into it as his body fills out, but as of today, it's not in his repertoire.
