When it comes to top-level football, not many players are capable of being skilled technicians at robust warriors at the same time. However, Dusan Tadic, who currently plays for Southampton, is a Serbian winger who fights for every ball like it’s the last one and he lunges into challenges and tackles without any fear or hesitation. On the other hand, his skills and intelligence make him a highly creative midfielder, and he is becoming one of the key players for the club. Some experts predicting that he could be something like Nemanja Vidic was in Manchester United. They are two different positions, but they come from the same country and they have that energy which is required for leaders.
– Playing Style And Career
The quality of Dusan Tadic is now well-known in the Premier League, and his career could still lead him to bigger clubs. As he started to play football in a small town in his native Serbia, Tadic could only dream of playing for clubs such as Southampton, but his career first took him to Holland and now he is able to leave his mark on the top competition in the UK. He had played for Twente and Groningen before Ronald Koeman made him his first signing in the role of manager of Southampton back in the summer of 2014.
Tadic plays with such energy and passion that often intimidates his opponents and forces them to make mistakes and unreasonable passes. With his powerful left foot and brilliant vision, he can score and assist, depending on the situation. This universality makes him a complete player, capable of creating action from nothing. So far, Tadic played 87 games for Southampton and now has 15 goals on his tally. Also, he is very successful when it comes to playing for the National team, and he is the leading star in the Serbian football team. He is very praised in his home country and compared to the some of the greatest Serbian football players.
– Attitude And Strength
Since Dusan Tadic came to club for a record fee of £10.9 million, the fans at St. Mary’s expected a lot from this calm and reserved young boy. However, nobody could predict that this attacking midfielder will soon become their favorite player and the central star in the club. After Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle had left the club in the summer, Tadic stayed to provide the fans with some more joy and entertainment. Truthfully, he managed to do that and he did it well.
The new coach, Claude Puel, gave him a different role than the one he had in the previous season, and it seems that diamond perfectly suits Tadic’s style of play. In the current season, he is more prolific in setting up his teammates with goalscoring chances than he is with scoring himself, but his warrior attitude and constant running make him a fans favorite. Like they say – it’s not important whether you are the scorer, it is important that your team scores.
