One of the best talents in football. Only 21 but dominates games like a 28 year old. Will be a complete AM in few years

He's not THAT good.

Brilliant set piece taker though, maybe the best in the world right now.

I had to think of Juninho too.

The frequency with which he scores those freekicks from all distances is astonishing, it's also astonishing how rare great free kick takers are.

Only the free kicks really, it's easy to forget that even without the free kick Juninho was still absolutely brilliant.

Best set piece taker in the world, but he's still yet to convince in open play IMO. However, nonetheless he's talented, won't be too long until he starts impacting the game.

No need for probably, he is the best freekick scorer in the world hands down.

He's also very good at one touch passing, I'm always in awe of how good he combines with his teammates. But lacks great vision or creativity that top AMs have imo. Disappears in games a lot. He seems to have good work ethic and good technique on the ball top top it off.

This is my opinion solely based on CL matches I've watched of him last season.

Since he's only 21 I think he can become really really good.

Wouldn't go that far but Juninho was quality at absolutely everything offensively, he doesn't do anything else which even comes close to resembling him.

Yeah his style is nothing like Juninhos. Just for discussions sake (it's obviously not this simple) if you were to simplify the AM position into 3 categories 'Passers', 'Dribblers' and 'Runners' Hakan would to be in runner category whereas Juninho would be in the passer category imo.

Just as a disclaimer i really rate him lol.

His free kicks are great though, even the ones that don't go in end up as penalties :bow:

He's no Pirlo. and im sure Mijahlovic could walk on the field and punch it in better than him

Good. Then don't worry, he'll enter your field of focus all by himself in a couple of years.
