Why Giorgian de Arrascaeta is a key cog in the Flamengo system

Giorgian de Arrascaeta has struggled with injuries over the past few months. Despite his absence, the Uruguayan is still a key cog in the Flamengo system. Let’s talk about why Giorgian is such a key piece in the team.

As the strongest team in South America, Flamengo has been scouted well by their opponents. Despite their depth, there are three players that are always targeted in the lineup. These are their three forwards, Gabriel Barbosa, Bruno Henrique, and Pedro. 

While all three of these stars deserve the spotlight, Giorgian argues to be an even more crucial player in the system. He is not only a talented dribbler, but he is a complete player on offence with both goal-scoring power and playmaking ability.

Despite these traits, Giorgian is not seen as a top threat by opposing teams because the forwards score so many goals. They get short-sighted when they’re forced to scout him since he’s the top passer behind the club’s offence.

Giorgian is a complete offensive player

When viewers watch Giorgian, they are amazed by how he controls the ball. He not only loves using those dribbling skills but he is also a solid playmaker who can make some accurate passes. You should be aware that Giorgian loves flashy moves but most of the time, he will make the right play. 

His career is filled with highlights like scissor kick goals but Giorgian’s style is more geared to play the number 10 role. He loves to handle the ball and attack from the space just behind the striker. He will decide between taking it himself or making the right pass to the three forwards in the front line.

Giorgian has been a strong player during his career with clubs like Cruzeiro and Flamengo in the Brasileirão. He has been stellar ever since he was a young player in Uruguay but his move to Brazil is what made him a top choice for the national team. He is well-respected in that regard by his Uruguay teammates like Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani.

Giorgian is a vocal leader who motivates his teammates

With his stellar bag of tricks, Giorgian is a key cog and one of the best leaders in the team. He is not only a player with a deep skillset but he is also one of the best teammates that anyone can ask for. He can also speak well and he always knows what to say at the right time to help his teammates better.

Since he has to perform in the playmaker role, you can expect him to move the chess pieces in their attacking approach. He is a stable player who knows how to control his actions and the game. Giorgian is quite the measured player that the team relies on to make the tough moves in the right manner.

It is difficult to win a game without a vocal leader who can guide them to the win. Over the three years that Giorgian has played for Flamengo, he has proven that he can stay within the system. That is a testament to his well-rounded skillset because the team and its players know his value. 

It will be fun to watch when he returns from injury because Giorgian plays such a huge role in the lineup.
