This is our new talent from Sweden, Branimir Hrgota (you pronounce it like this: "Hurrgohta")! In Superettan (Swedish 2nd league) he had a record of 10 goals and 5 assists in 14 games (28 goals in 39 games in 2011) before Maxi Eberl and Lucien Favre brought him to the Niederrhein. In the pre season Hrgota impressed he with his speed, technique and goal scoring abilities. In the Bundesliga he made 4 appearances as a substitute player so far without having much impact.
His strongest points sure are his speed (maybe I was even too harsh with it ) off the ball and his finishing skills. It will be hard for him to convert his performances from Sweden into the Bundesliga but I am optimistic about him, he showed that he has potential. Branimir has a decent first touch, his dribbling is mediocre at best and he's definitely slower with the ball than without it. His shooting is more about accuracy than power and he's comfortable in front of the enemy goal. He still has much to learn. Maybe I was a bit conservative with TS, ACC and TECH but I didn't want to overrated him at this time when he still has to prove that he's good enough for BuLi football.jpg?1[/img]
