In the modern footballing world it remains hard to be an undiscovered gem. Scouting starts at an early age, with players as young as seven often being brought into a professional football club’s academy. There is a huge demand to know about the “next big thing” and how to acquire them at the cheapest possible cost, and this invested interest in scouting has made football very small in a way. A team’s young trump card is no longer hidden or surprising simply because the young player has been followed throughout his short life, and this is very much the case with Sergio Canales. His progression and career has been recorded on You Tube over the last ten years, with one of the videos I have provided with this update being footage of a 12 year old Canales playing a match, and by being thrust into the public eye at such a tender age with such visible ability has resulted in countless teams fighting over his signature on their contract. In 2006, fifty percent of the rights to Canales were bought by Deportivo de La Coruña in a deal involving the transaction of numerous other players (including Pedro Munitis and Dudu Aouate) between the two clubs - a deal rather impressive for a player who hadn’t played a single minute of first team action for Racing Santander at the time. In fact Canales only made his debut for the Racing Santander first team last season in a UEFA Cup match against FC Honka, yet his appearances last season were restricted purely to appearances off the bench and not through full matches. But it was Miguel Ángel Portugal’s appointment this season that has seen Canales explode onto the scene with a flurry of stupendous goals against superior opposition, and has thus driven the Spanish media into a driveling frenzy. But no performance goes unnoticed and, as I stated before, resulted in Real Madrid acquiring Canales for the rather surprising transfer value of €4,5 million, a real bargain compared to many youngsters showing the slightest amount of potential, and for him to be transferred to Los Blancos at the end of the current La Liga season. Many questions have arisen regarding this move; will Canales now squander on the bench? Or will he be given the chance and take to a higher stage and realise his true potential? Will he learn from the elder players at Real Madrid? Or will he be daunted by their superior transfer fees and thus cloister himself in the process. Only time will tell.
If there is one thing that Canales has proved time and time again for Racing Santander, it is that he can play a defensive line [u]unbelievably[u] well. There are few youngsters that can exploit the offside trap like Canales can, and it is that very reason why few youngsters score as often as Canales. He knows how to punish a defender for the slightest of mishaps or losses in concentration. His positional sense, his vision if you like, combined with his immediate burst of pace has made him a lethal player in the La Liga, a league famed for it’s pace and so it makes you wonder how dangerous he could potentially be as a player in any other league.
Like countless young Spanish midfielders current plying their trade in the La Liga, Sergio Canales has the same physical skill to pivot and turn with total ease. His movements are very fluid and, whilst he may not do it to the same degree as Perotti, Jesus Navas or Santi Cazorla, it enables him to move and cut through opposing players with total ease – although don’t confuse this statement, it doesn’t mean that he warrants the Mazing Run card. His body swerves and the odd feint prove him to be a difficult player to keep track of or mark, and his ability to turn swiftly when in possession of the ball makes him a player that can score from almost anywhere in the box – and it has shown.
Now, there’s one aspect about Sergio Canales that people seem to spout whenever discussing the lad. They say that his passing is absolutely terrific. A stand out aspect of his play. They’ll draw comparisons between him and the likes of Guti and Fabregas. Bollocks! You could name, at the minimum, 30 young players who are significantly better than him when it comes to passing. Canales is an alright passer, and in the final third he can play a good pass, whether it be a ground pass or a long pass, but to draw such comparisons to such playmakers is certainly over the top. Heck, to even put Canales into the yellows for his Short Pass Accuracy would be pushing it. Sure, he has the power and pace behind his passes, but his style of passing is mostly economical and he will fairly often pass the ball to the opposition. To put Canales at an 80+ value for his Short Pass Accuracy would compromise the difference between himself and his other colleagues such as Colsa, Lacen and Munitis, who are both certainly superior to Canales in this department. One thing also said continuously about Canales is that he has excellent vision. Now this isn’t a necessarily incorrect thing to say about Canales, but the interpretation of what this means has become incorrect. The “vision” lies more in his ability to play the line at a phenomenal standard for a young midfielder, or his ability to exploit space or his movements to make that final pass played to him count. So, to be blunt, he has the anticipation to get into good positions to make a goal-scoring opportunity or, to be blunt, attacking positional sense. But in terms of the vision of his passing, well, it’s not bad but, like I’ve said before, you’ll see countless young playmakers superior to him in this department. He can play an accurate long pass in a dead-ball situation, that’s certainly true, and that thus shows a good understanding of his team-mates movements – but that’s more a repeated training ground procedure rather than the foresight to pass the ball into an exploitative space. He’s simply just a mezza punta, and his passing is highly indicative
Canales is often described as being cool when shooting, an adroit finisher if you will. This one statement, released onto the internet by some journalist or blogger, has driven the media into an absolute frenzy, claiming that he is the solution to every club’s weaknesses and that he’s the next Julen Guerrero or Rafael Van Der Vaart, and whilst the goals that he has scored are certainly evocative of the aforementioned at their peaks, there is still quite a large amount of practice he needs to complete before he’s even close to being mentioned in the same league as the previously mentioned players. There is still rashness to his shooting, although conveniently for Canales a highlights reel will scarcely show that. Take the match against Sevilla, Canales scored two exquisite goals, there’s no doubt about that. But how many people took notice of the three shots he took before the first goal? All of which were skied high because, unbeknownst to any logical person, he decided to volley them all with his first touch even though, for two of the shots at least, he definitely had the time and capability to take more touches and get even closer to the goal. I’m not sure what was the cause for this exactly, an over confidence in his ability (Although one of the other areas of his playing style would contradict this)? An over eagerness to make his mark on the game? A desire to perform the spectacular? Who knows? However, this should not be construed as me stating that Canales is a poor finisher, I don’t believe that by any means in fact his finishing is very accomplished and ahead of many forwards, let alone midfielders, of his age. The fact is, Sergio Canales needs to refine his finishing further. Yes, he’s scored a fantastic amount of goals given his appearances, but the principle of the matter is that he could have scored a lot more.
One of the more peculiar traits of Canales is his usage of his opposite foot. However, his proclivity to use his left foot instead of his right can be considered one of his foibles. Whilst he did use his right foot for the two touches he made when he scored against Valladolid (URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUqPjNZ_Tog), it paints an all too incorrect picture about his inclination to use his right foot, for it truly is quite a rarity for him to use his right foot. In fact, you could class it as being one of his foibles. There are too many scenarios where, with several opposing players on him, he’ll inconveniently use his left foot, rather than his right, and thus lose possession or make a doomed pass. Granted, this can be perceived as that paradigm case of young players rushing their movements, but if you watch his forays forward when dribbling with the ball, you’ll see that he only uses his left foot, rather comparable to Sevilla’s Diego Capel - although Diego Capel is genuinely crap with his opposite foot, so it’s not really the best comparison. It’s rather frustrating really, he has the control and ability in his opposite foot yet he doesn’t use it that often, and clearly favouring his left. Perhaps it’s a lack of confidence towards his left foot, or perhaps he’s trying to keep it secret from the opposing players like a trump card of sorts; whatever the reason may be, it certainly draws you to wonder about his future potential with utter intrigue and curiosity, about the enigma that Sergio Canales may be.
Rather interestingly, Canales has not truly been pinned down to a set role within the team per se. Granted, he is an attacking midfielder, but one who has been assigned a free role with a literal “I’ll do what I like” attitude encouraged by Miguel Ángel Portugal, and in this free role he is encouraged to go forward at any given opportunity. He’s always attacking the goal and tends to be the player furthest forward for Racing, and it is this that’ll often lead you to believe that Serrano, Munitis, Xisco and Tchité are being lazy when really it’s simply a case of Canales having a real gung-ho attitude. Although you could plausibly argue that this is a flaw in his playing style, his inclination to charge forward at any given moment often results in him being caught offside with some frequency and often completely out of action when a counter attacking move is instigated against Racing. Although, a lot of his being “out of action” can be pointed to his refusal to track back or use unnecessary energy, and I suppose this feature of Canales is rather comparable to that of Andrei Arshavin.
