WHAT COACHES SAY: Great service from the flanks … He can get behind a defense and be opportunistic in front of goal … He looked at his best when connecting with the CF Sammy Adjei... A magical left foot, similar to Diego Fagundez … Conditioning coach said he was one of the strongest athletes in the whole school … A coach has to accept he will take risks and lose the ball sometimes or he is the wrong player for you, he can play on the right flank and cut in on his left similar to what Rosales did with the Sounders …1st step is explosive and he can beat defenders with it 1v1 on the wings … Useful on set pieces as well ... Left-footed guy who plays on right for them ... His challenge is going to be the athleticism of MLS ... He's technical, clever guy … It could be too overwhelming for him athletically.
