Turkey Coach Lucescu: Under Similar to Salah

Cengiz Under | AS Roma

The coach of the Turkish national team said great words of the Roma right-winger Cengiz Under in a recent interview.

Mircea Luscescu has not doubt that Cengiz Under is a potential crack. According to the coach of the Turkish national team, the young winger has a great career ahead of him.

He also analyzed Under’s growth path in a recent interview with the Italian portal ForzaRoma.info.

I follow him closely because I have to monitor his performance for the national team. He is growing up and improving match after match. But he is scoring less in this period,” said Lucescu.

He is a player with a great future ahead of him. He is similar to Salah in terms of quality and way to play. He must experience but there are 5 years of difference between them.

We have to think about how Salah was at his age, so we can compare them. If he continues improving in the next few years, we could certainly compare him to Salah. In reference to speed, he is certainly even stronger than the Liverpool‘s winger,” continued the Turkish coach.

Under also got a sensational shot. But he must learn how to play in narrow spaces when three-four players are around him. He might move towards the center of the field in the future to put his quality at the service of his team.

Over time, he will be able to move freely and make the most of all his qualities. He has managed to adapt to Italian football quickly and to develop his characteristics.

Lucescu also expressed his opinion on Under‘s possible departure from Rome. “I believe he could do great things at Bayern Munich because there are free spaces in Germany and he could take advantage of his qualities there. But Roma are a big club as well and if they sell him is only because of money.”
