Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: Lazio’s Star

When most people think of Lazio, they think of Ciro Immobile, Felipe Anderson, and Stefan de Vrij. One player who is even more important than those three is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Milinkovic-Savic is a 22-year-old Serbian midfielder. At 6’4” tall, Sergej is a giant in midfield; while you might be tempted to pigeon-hole a taller player into a defensive midfield role, Sergej is most effective as a creative, attacking minded central midfielder.

Now that we are in January, teams are going to be clamoring for the young Serbian’s services. Let’s take a look at some film and see what makes Sergej so special.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is one of the most creative playmakers in Serie A. He has a nearly unrivaled combination of close control, shot power, and vision. If a larger club wants to snatch him from Lazio, they are going to have to pay big.
