What is Patryk Klimala’s style of play?
Patryk Klimala is one of the strikers who shows some outstanding traits of a center attacker. His style of play can be compared with that of Lewandowski and Eden Dzeko. Coupled with his modern style of play, he creates a massive threat for the opposing defenders. He is a born finisher, due to the fact that he scores most of the chances that he gets. He covers the most distance in his game and influences the game massively. Such a joy to watch the Polish man play at the moment, we would not be surprised if there are greener pastures awaiting him in the nearest future.
What are Patryk Klimala’s strengths?
Patryk Klimala is a threat to all defenders due to his strengths and mentality. He is a pretty tall striker, standing at 183cm, and this makes him very clinical in aerial battles. The ability to dribble past his markers is in his favor, considering how frequently he does that. His work rate is very high as well, as he influences the game mostly leading the attack. In defense, he has the ability to clear off aerial threats from an opposition set piece.
Physically, he is strong. His balance off the ball is one to admire. Coupled with his good positioning and finishing rate, Klimala is one force to be feared by every defender.
What are Patryk Klimala’s weaknesses?
As any attacker, even the best players in the attacking field have very poor defending skills. Having said that, Patryk Klimala falls in this category as well. He lacks some defending attributes like; Man marking, tackling, etc. In attack as well he lacks the ability to influence the game from set pieces. His vision to set up play is not quite up to par.
The most important factor to note from this young prospect is the fact that he possesses most of the abilities of a center attacker. With time, he will improve on the areas where he is lacking. Mentorship and the appropriate teammates will play a great role as well.
