In a recent interview, journalist Frank McAvennie lavished admiration on Liverpool superstar Dominik Szoboszlai.
In a glowing assessment, McAvennie described Szoboszlai as “incredible” and “everything you could want in a midfielder.”
Expanding on his praise, McAvennie mentioned that he believes Szoboszlai would put in a solid performance in any position on the pitch and named him as the ‘signing of the year’.
What did Frank McAvennie have to say about Dominik Szoboszlai?
McAvennie stated to Football Insider: “I wasn’t expecting him to be this good. What a player he is – big, athletic, great feet, mobile, two footed. He’s incredible, everything you could want in a midfielder.
“In fact, he’s so good he could play anywhere. Put him at centre-back and he’d probably deliver a Rolls-Royce performance. I haven’t seen a better signing by any club this summer, in the Premier League or anywhere else. He’s an absolute beast and should be huge for Liverpool for a long time. They have just completed the signing of the year.”
Dominik Szoboszlai, how significant is he to the Liverpool team?
Szoboszlai has been a revelation in the middle of Liverpool’s midfield since his debut at Anfield. After their midfield ranks were heavily criticized last season, the Hungarians have converted their most vulnerable vulnerability into their best advantage.
Szoboszlai was the throbbing heart of Liverpool’s midfield in their most recent victory over Wolves. Despite a sloppy first half effort that saw the Reds down by a goal, he controlled the game.
Last season, the Reds’ midfield was consistently sluggish and devoid of creativity. Szoboszlai’s contribution has solved both of these issues in one fell stroke.
He not only works deceptively hard, but his inventiveness from both advanced and deep areas has revolutionized the way Liverpool play – in many respects, he is the ideal player to fit into a Jurgen Klopp system.
Liverpool’s recruitment team has come under scrutiny in recent years, but when it comes to Szoboszlai, they have clearly gotten it right this time.
