rslack provides an excellent player profile of one of our reported targets.
Due to the overwhelming amount of bogus information circulating about our targets, I thought that a few profiles could be in order. This is not to say that I think we could use any player profiled in these threads. However, I think that if the rumors are circulating from other sources, then a small profile might help our members gain a better understanding than a short youtube video.
Kevin De Bruyne
Club: KRC Genk
Height: 1.8 m 5' 11'
Weight: 68 kg / 149 lbs
Position: Attacking Mid (F)
I'll preface this profile by saying that I've seen several (5-6 club) performances by the player, but also relied on the opinions of friends. My exposure to the Belgian Pro League has primarily come through streaming games and friends in France.
The player made his debut with Genk at 17 years old, where his strengths have made him a starter. He is skilled with the ball at his feet and is quick for the Belgian Pro League. Somewhat simliar in style to Malouda, he plays an advanced role on the left hand side and is quick to move onto his right foot (Messi is another who tends to run from outside to inside in this way). The player has a strong shot, and descent free-kicks with his right foot. He tends to try playing the through ball as opposed to crossing, but can deliver precise crosses when needed. Skilled with the ball at his feet, De Bruyne isn't afraid to take on defenders.
On the downside, the player is small for someone of 19 years old in England. His aerial game is understandably limited. He tends to make smart passes, but is still discovering his talents.
The player is under contract until 2015, and the Belgian side will be reluctant to sell off a promising young U-19 National player so early.
