The player has a great rhythm, his running is fluid, high frequency of the supports, short amplitude of the stride.
He stands out in the ball and chain insertions, especially in the range of his competence, where he often frees himself thanks to external overlaps.
When the action develops from the opposite side he is good at cutting in towards the center and being free, as shown by the two goals scored among the professionals so far.
