This week we have Hakan Calhanolgu who is a fantastic Attacking midfielder.
He can play in a number of midfield positions, left, right or centre.
He is a very creative player and a fantastic passer of the ball.
He shows a good 1st touch, very aware of where teammates are around him.
He always manages to find a pass even when crowded out.
Very good at keeping the ball and using it well.
His free-kicks are very ferocious….Of course a very good weapon to have in a team.
He scores goals, some very powerful goals.
His technique and power make his shots very hard too stop.
I love players like this, Dean Ashton for Example was very similar with the way he shot.
He is a very intelligent player , Hakan’s class is very evident to see.
Technically he is world class…. controls the game with his technical abilities and would be great with a team that has high amounts of possession.
His long shots get me off my seat, very good on corners, free-kicks.
A number of clubs will be looking at Hakan in the summer and I hope it’s the Prem at least.
Obviously it goes without saying I wouldn’t mind him at West Ham 🙂
