Good endurance … Good on the ball, good balance and clever on the dribble. Very dangerous ... Slighter build, but quick and capable of winning 1-v-1 battles going forward ... Maybe not a clean enough technical player to take over a sole attacking role in MLS ... Does he have enough punch to get it done in that position in MLS? ... The defensive side of his game is a question ... If he learns how to defend, he could be a left back in MLS and let him get up and down the line."
