His record is great at the moment, having scored 9 goals and assisted at least 1 in 11 League and Cup appearances until today. He has done exceptionally well against small clubs, but struggled against some big clubs in the derbies until today.
He has been playing mainly as a CF in formations with one Striker, and as a SS in a 4-4-2 alongside a Striker who is more of a Target-Man like DeCamargo and Pote. He had even played a couple of times out-wide both on the Right and Left as a change of positions during the match, but I won't comment and judge him in that short space of time that he played there.
As a Striker, he looks nice and fluid, having good pace and movement for a player of his size, and that's one of the reasons why he came to APOEL. His has shown some good technique for a Striker, but maybe not exactly around the levels of his current Set, but slightly lower. He has some skills like fake-shots, some good creativity as a SS, but I won't characterize his technique as his biggest asset. His current Attack&Shot-Accuracy combo characterizes him well, as he is a fairly dangerous Striker, and reasonably good finisher, but not top-class at any of those departments.
However, I am surprised about his low Defence, because he had been positive in contributing without the ball, pressuring opponents and winning the ball back. Of course, his Stamina has not been great until today, and he always gets subbed-off when starts matches or comes on as a sub, but let's just not forget that he had been off-Season from his latest club in Thailand before signing for APOEL, and before that he had some knee-injury as well. Maybe he will improve after having more game-time under his belt, and maybe that's why he has struggled in some derbies until today at APOEL, and not because that he is not a big-game player...
His current Set is really good, and personally I wouldn't change many things. Even those that I would like to see change, I won't suggest them for now, because I want to watch him more before doing so.
