Player of the round: Lukas Magera, big season for the big man?

Lukas Magera, good with the final ball, either he's offering it or getting it

Name: Lukas Magera
Position: centre forward/central midfielder
Born: 1983
Height/Weight: 195 cm/87 kg
Club: FC Timisoara

Liked the player since his arrival in Romania, at Dusan Uhrin’s request, and still believe that he can be one of Liga I’s top footballers, if used regularly in his natural position. This powerful centre-forward had “to pay” in the past for his excellent vision of the game and his ability to offer the final pass, being used a lot in central midfield, but things looked to have changed since the arrival of Vladimir Petrovic. Magera plays upfront alongside the creative and skillful Dorin Goga, an awesome partnership in my opinion, and the Czech has a perfect start of season. After a wonderful strike in the first round, Magera scored again last weekend, helping his team come from behind in a tough away match, against Gaz Metan Medias, for a 2-2 draw. The player offered another solid display, with his composed style and intelligent plays, looking comfortable on the ball, holding it upfield, opening up channels and throwing useful passes with both feet behind the opposition’s defense. Ok, he looked too slow at times, but it would be unrealistic to ask for pace from a player of his size, while it’s very clever from Petrovic to keep this guy as close to the danger zone as possible. Two goals and one assist in two games looks like a very promising return from a player who could enjoy his best season in Liga I. And probably his last.
