Rúben Lameiras

Rúben Lameiras, the offensive midfielders who was forgotten by his country. He is a Tottenham graduate who got picked up from Millwall by the Spurs, with already a small loan passage in Sweden at the modest Atvidaberg, this was his first senior experience. Now definitely at Coventry he will try stabilize his career with more game minutes. Last season he helped his team with 2 goals and 2 assists in 32 total games in all competitions, never being a starting eleven man he was largely used from the bench.

The best qualities in this player are his passing quality, dribbling and his game vision. He likes to keep the ball, read the game and go for the dribble or serve his playmates with killer passes. Another characteristic from this player is the way he can change a game with his quality set pieces due to a fantastic left foot. These are all the characteristics that make this player a good offensive midfielder.

Despite his qualities he still has some aspects to improve, like his physical ability that makes him still very vulnerable in duels, although he can mask this difficulty with his ability to hide the ball from the opponents. He still needs to improve the way he defines his plays, he takes unnecessary risks when dribbling when he should simplify his game and finally also he needs to be a more active player in the defensive process.

Rúben is a player that still couldn’t show all his potential, but despite that, in England he is still seen has a promising player who still needs that “click” to get to another level. This second season at Coventry could be more elucidative on what this player can do in the near future if he can win a spot in the starting eleven and will try to get the attention from the Premier League scouts.
