Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Average skill and technique, but everything must be quicker and you must be fitter because technical skills break down as one gets tired. A smart soccer player with good understanding of how to play and where to move but needs to get it done more consistently. Has good strength but needs to improve the other physical attributes for the pro level. Nothing works without a grip on fitness, speed and power.
