WHAT COACHES SAY: “Great technique … He has a professional left foot, delivery on set pieces is unbelievable, you have to be aware of him when he is 20-30 yards away because he can strike it from distance ... I think he's got a special left foot which you got to imagine that pushes him up the list ... He played as a winger, underneath like a 9.5 ... He's got good vision and he knows when to release the ball and he's not fast but he's tricky ... He knows how to lose the guy to get his cross or shot off. ... Kid was player of the year in our league. You have to be aware of him ... Depending on schematics he can play pinched in to the midfield either left side or wrong-foot on right side ... Very educated left foot, very tricky … If he were American, he'd have a lot more interest ... Very, very effective college player. Question will be pace and athleticism. But very clever … Decent size, but can he run with everyone in MLS ... Kind of an underneath guy. He's left-footed but can't be a winger.”
