THE MODERN STRIKER
Classic number 9, although he now proudly wears shirt number 21. A modern striker. Strong physically but also with excellent technique. Lethal in front of goal, he moves like a shark in the penalty area. He has the goal in his mind, a true striker physique, strong in the head, capable of fighting for the team and getting it up for attacking actions. He can act as a pivot and, if necessary, also as an offensive playmaker with his changes and his assisats with the right timing for his teammates, just like ... an artist! Moreover, he has rhythm. The rhythm of the shark as it swims fast towards its prey. Relentless, pounding.
