Maikel Kieftenbeld

Postby PES Stats Database » 2010 Aug 15, 10:28



Maikel Kieftenbeld is one of FC Groningen's surprising acquisitions, coming over from Cup fighters Go Ahead Eagles in the Jupiler League. At Go Ahead, he mostly featured in midfield as a holding player in the centre or a wide midfielder but since arriving at FC Groningen he has been placed at the right back spot by Pieter Huistra.

Needless to say, he hasn't been at his best but he has shown some glimpses of ability at getting forward on the side. Defensively he still needs to learn a lot though, often being caught out with space behind his back due to his poor positioning. Whilst perhaps not the biggest talent at full-back, he has some potential and could grow out to a steady performer for Groningen.

In my opinion one of the poorer backs in the league (well, compared to his fellow teammates). Still has room for potential but for now his defensive qualities are far below par and I havent caught him on contributing to the attack a lot.

Now playing as a CMF/DMF and he is better at that IMO.

And I feel his passing is better then this. If it was this poor it would be clearly noticable when he was playing in midfield.

I think he plays just as a DM. Can imagine his defence/mentality to be higher then.

This set looks pretty outdated. He played a controlling midfielder past season. Please update him in such a way.

Updated his main position. Any ideas on ATT/DEF figures and any other tweaks ?
