Poor form for the (very high) expectations that people had of him guys. He wasn't bad by any stretch and was still the best teenage midfielder in the league.

Good to know. He's also very young so there's still plenty of time for him to hone his skills.

My only fear is that he doesn't get enough playing time to develop. Both Madrid and Carlo aren't exactly known for being development powerhouses.

What's Madrid fans verdict on him?

I think he's very talented, but the one thing that bothers me is that he's incredibly one footed. I don't think I've ever seen him control the ball with his right foot. Even the way he receives the ball is kind of awkward. He'd rather roll his left foot over the ball instead of opening up his body and controlling it with his right foot first. His orientation when receiving the ball sucks.

That's why I'm not sure if he'll actually be a sole DM. He doesn't open up his body and he's really one footed so his passing angles suck. I think his development would be aided a lot more with a detail obsessed coach who could change those parts of his game. It seems like Carlo's tried to compensate for that by playing him more to the right as the pitch will open up for him better that way (or it's because of Kroos).

For now I see him as a CM. Off the ball he seems great at winning 50/50s, he's combative, puts his foot in, good size and leap based on the headers I've seen him win, and has an amazing engine and dynamism. He's very mobile.

On the ball he's really interesting. He plays very fast. He looks to play two touches then spreads the play. However despite playing at a high tempo he does so in a very controlled manner. He's very good at switching the ball to the flanks. He can hold the ball under pressure then carry it forward well. He's quick at turning with the ball too. Given the way he strikes the ball I can see him becoming a shooting threat in the future too.

He has all the makings to be a great double pivot CM or a CM who plays behind the ball in a midfield 3. Honestly think he'd do bits playing as a CM for someone like Klopp.

He's 100% a CM, not a DM.

Kroos' replacement really. His long passes are a thing of beauty. Has all the skills... just needs seasoning. He just turned 19 in November.

Honestly, I love his progression at the moment and could see him breaking out in a big way when he his 21 or 22. Of course, sooner is better but you can tell he is still learning the game at this level.

Also, as Sports wrote, he is definitely not a DM and I hope he doesn't get the Kovacic treatment where we try to shoe horn him as one.
