Offensive winger, combining a fantastic ball control at a speed out of the ordinary, preference to be used on the left wing attack, with a great dribble a player can become very useful to the Bianconeri.
We certainly can not define him as a Titan, Giaccherini is 167 cm high and 60 kg, but the physical helps to enhance his speed.
An innate ability to take over the man, characteristic that recently was lost a little of view, combined with a reasonable accuracy in football can help a lot Juventus in terms of attacking play.
Like all offensive wingers he can not certainly be considered a skilled ball-stealer, but with the help of Conte the good Giaccherini can also improve on defense.by:Luca Tonazzini
