This exciting young winger began his career as a youth at Bucaspor to years later being spotted and signed by Roma for €13.4million. At only 21 years old Cengiz Under has become the youngest Turkish player and second youngest Roma player to ever score in the Champions League.
The Turkish youngster is best suited to playing on the right flank. Under constantly draws comparisons to Juventus Paulo Dybala. Although why Dybala takes his clubs number 10 role and plays more center, Under plays under Romas 4-2-3-1 system which suits and caters to him better. Transitioning from the defensive to attacking stage, Under is the exact player that his teammates look to in quick efforts to counter attack. Under packs some strength and bite into his attack which enables him to withstand the taxing physical Italian football defenders. Many wingers now a day are one trick ponies, but Under can easily beat his opponent in numerous ways. Defenders must be aware of his explosive one to one capabilities as well as simple feints from position while he allows play to develop on front of him.
In his first season in one of Europes top 5 leagues, Under featured 18 starts bagging 3 goals and 5 assists. He statically preforms better, shoots more often and scores higher in a Champions League game. Example: Successfully dribbles 2.3 per 90 in the CL appose to 1.4 per 90 in Seria A
To improve, Under does need to improve his scoring record for an attacking player. With many of his attempts coming from range last campaign. He seems to have problems with shorter distances.
Well apparently he has a price tag on him of €50 million as Roma is worried he will be picked away like the likes of Salah and Allison for big money the 2 summers past. Predicting a 21 year old future football career is near impossible these days but I can almost say you will be seeing a lot more of him in the Roma side this season
As for FOOTBALL INDEX Under trades at £1.60 a share. I personally have invested in him and are seeing profits just shy of the 40% mark. He has a 5p spread and is currently at a trading high price after scoring an incredible equalising goal on Sunday night scoring 118 on the PB Matrix. Maybe its a poor time to buy the player given this spike or maybe if you wait you will miss out. Its one of those situations thats so hard to tell. He did play the full 90 minutes for Roma so it could be a sign that we will be seeing a lot of him this season. He is less than 2% of my 120+ player portfolio so I’m not pumping for personal gain unfortunately. I see great value in the footballer. Will he be a top winger at a top premier league club some day? Who knows. But he’s on a good trend.
