dont get me wrong, he's an incredible talent BUT the highlights obviously dont show the whole picture.
He's had some nice dribbles but his actually successful dribble % is rather poor. His current percentage is at 43, 10 successful dribbles in 23 attempts.
Wingers with good dribbling such as Leao, Chiesa, Lozano etc. are around the 60-70% mark..definitely something he has to work on
If he completed 70%+ of dribbles, he wouldn’t have cost Napoli 10m. Leao and Chiesa both go for about 70/80m right now, hence my emphasis on the scouting part of the deal.
Obviously isn’t perfect, but if he’s good enough to tear Liverpool a new one, then he can keep going as he is.
Also, where is he losing those balls? If it’s high up the pitch, then it’s not so bad. If he’s losing them ala
Sanchez, smack bang in the middle of the park leading the team to be caught in transition, then it’s obviously a problem.
