He's been playing better in the few games with Carrera as coach, showing good stamina and tenacity. He doesn't have a steady role in the team though he is essentially their only CM . He is fairly athletic and well balanced in attack and defense but beside roaming forward and pressing there isn't something he does consistently. He plays in a very individualistic way for his position. His link up game is decent but not something he prioritizes. He doesn't help in build up much and he isn't a distributor. Aside from a few exceptions based on which i can say he is an above average technical passer both short and long passing has been a surprisingly small part of his game. Mantalos has to pull a lot of the weight for him to play more the way he prefers.
His technical skills aren't as good as the set suggests. LPA and Tech are the only stats i see in yellows. His TW is the highest in the league behind Iglesias
atm but he's barely looked greens in Aek.
