Name: Jordi MBOULA Queralt
Born: 16 March 1999
Position: Attacking midfielder/winger
I was impressed with Mboula today against City.
Jordi Mboula has developed nicely without hype. He is a consistent performer, I like him a lot. I think he will eventually become a 9, he is great in front of goal and strong. This guy is every promosing. The great thing about him is that he scores all kinds of goals. He is also a good playmaker on the wings. I hope he keeps getting better.
He's poor man's Adama
He does have tendencies to just run at defenders towards the backline at times, but he's far more versatile and scores a lot more goals. Can play all three positions in attack, but mostly a wide winger, which is where I think his future lays. Big talent without a doubt, his biggest challenge will be not to end up like Adama.
Barcelona media have written plenty of articles about him, giving him the "La Masia Balon d'Or" a couple of times too, so not quite without hype. You can't expect to be in La Masia, the greatest football academy in the world, and not be hyped in any way. I think what you mean by hype is how much people overreact to them on Twitter.Jordi Mboula has developed nicely without hype.
