What is László Bénes style of play? 

László Bénes having turned down a move to Arsenal; is a very mature and dedicated prospect. Due to his quick thinking and style of play, he has been linked to his Slovak fellow countryman Hamsik in his style of play. He is an intelligent midfielder and very creative with the ball. He is one player who is always ready to have the ball so he can distribute it to his teammates. As a playmaker, he has set up four goals in 13 appearances in the German league.  He is a technical player, rather than a physical player; and that’s one feature that most midfielders need to possess to prosper in their respective areas of the game. Hopefully in the future, he will find teams which suit his interests and style of play. 

What are László Bénes’s Strengths? 

Laszlo Benes possesses most attributes of a successful midfielder. His ability to get to teammates with a pass is top notch, as he’s seem to find players around him easily. It really is a nightmare for defenders when they realize who they are facing. Technically, he is a midfield maestro, coupled with his freekick prowess and his long shot, goalkeepers would be at his mercy. Benes knows how to boss the midfield with his massive work rate in the game. Thus, having a midfielder like Benes in your team will give your midfield an advantage over your opponent’s midfield. What a composed midfielder to behold in this presents day football; Very dedicated, technically efficient and doesn’t get tired easily. 

What are László Bénes‘s Weaknesses? 

As any midfielder in the present-day football, Laszlo Benes cannot brag about his Defending and man marking abilities. He seems to find it difficult to progress in these respective areas. Even-though it is important for a team to have a midfielder who can defend, it is quite unfair to rate a midfielder according to the attributes of a defender. No single player in this wonderful game is blessed with all the attributes required from a footballer. There must be lack in at least an attribute, but, with time, enough training and experience, he will shine through.

Current season (19/20) 

László Bénes has come a very long way, and finally this is his season. A few years ago, Borussia’s fans doubted this purchase and thought they have overpaid for this unknown kid.
