History: After spending all his life in Colombia, playing for Deportivo Pereira, Independiente Santa Fe and Patriotas, he leaved for follow the "European Dream". He was bought by Lovech Litex, a team that at the time (2014) was second on the table of Bulgarian top division. Before to come in Europe Asprilla had scored only 11 goals in 42 games, showing only his great dribbling's attitude. Immediatly in Europe he developed an incredible consistency in goal, scoring 20 goals in the last season and an half.
Technical qualities: He is very similar to Yannick Bolasie, he has a great body, mixed to high level's techincal qualities. He has dribbling and creativity, his eccentricity is expressed by its constant spectacular play. He has also a powerful shoot from distance and from the pentalty area, he is able to score from all the pitch's angles. He has a good defensive attitude.
Mental qualities: He is very creative and imaginative, he always have a way to surprise the opponents. He know exactly how good he is and many times he seems to trespass the line between a spectacle play necessary for the team and way to make ridicule of his opponents.
Physical qualities: He is very tough, balanced and hard to throw down. He has a powerful run and acceleration, sometimes he is so fast that the opponents renounce to chase him.
Position: He play with Lovech on the right side of the pitch as offensive winger. But i think he is a natrual supporting striker that has the qualities to look for the ball in differents position, he needs to have the freedom to find the right position in the right moment. I would like to see him playing in a 4-4-2 in pairs with a techinacal player able to serve him in the spaces.
Weaknesses: Sometimes he seems to much selfish and arrogant. He is not a player able to play the ball in a insisted possession.
