Sergio's Speed Stats must be at least around Alexandrou's and Tiago Gomes' levels, if not more. His Dribble Accuracy, the same. I would say:Dribble Accuracy:
77 (+1)Explosive Power:
79 (+2)Dribble Speed:
79 (+2)Top Speed:
His Shot Technique is really underrated. He is one of the best players of APOEL in this aspect, with Amorin, Charalambides, Djebbour and one-two others. I would say:Shot Technique:
Mario is unbelievable. He hasn't missed a single minuted of playing time this season in Europe and in Cyprus! Basically, he is the only first-team APOEL RB.
Sergio is Poursaitidis'( viewtopic.php?f=188&t=32888&p=504279#p504279
) regen, with better technical and attacking abilities, but he is a little bit worse in defence than Poursaitidis. Well done to Ivan Jovanovic for bringing Mario Sergio to replace Poursaitidis. Ivan really saw his potential. In the first few months, maybe his first whole season to be honest, he was average in defence at best, but now he has improved MASSIVELY, especially in Europe he is a world-class performer at the age of 33!
Don't be surprised if he makes it to the Portugal NT under Fernando Santos!
Recently, APOEL re-newed his contract until Summer 2017, when he will be almost 36 years old!! Poursaitidis played until his 36, so there is little doubt that Mario cannot. However, eventually he will need a back-up RB to rest him.
He shows work-class Stamina every single game. His mobility is tremendous, as well as his Attacking willingness and ability.
In my opinion, judging him according to his Cyprus League performances, he is a 3-2 Workrate player. Goes forward really frequently, but leaves some gaps in defence. However, in his Champions League performances, he showed great defensive contribution as well, so it can a 3-3!
Therefore, I would suggest also:Defence:
3-2 (+1 / 0)/ 3-3 (+1 / +1)Aggression:
I don't think that he uses his Left-foot often enough. He is pretty much one-footed, even when he played as LB a bit last season.Weak Foot Frequency:
3 (-2)ADD: P04
- Darting Run
I strongly believe that this card feets his style nicely. He usually runs forward in attacks, impressively often for a RB.
