In focus today: Erkan Eyibil
The sparrows have been whistling it off the roof for a long time. A rough diamond is growing up. In itself, he combines every element that a “footballer magician” à la Ilkay Gündogan with a dash of Mesut Özil's genius, must embody. elegance, Ingenuity, Technique, Game intelligence, Vision, Agility, Stability and even a goal. Hardly an attribute that you would not be attributed to him. At least as far as the youth departments are concerned, he constantly confirms his performance. Still, there seems to be some fragility in its nature, let's just think of a Marc Stendera (formerly) from the "rival" Eintracht Frankfurt. Similar career, both native Kasseler, very similar in terms of player type, unfortunately also the fickleness.
You have to pay a big compliment to Mainz, that you only slowly introduce him to the first team. In contrast to a Leandro Barreiro (who could also be facing a world career), Erkan is still a little lacking in "maturity". But if Mainz can do it, Introducing him bit by bit to the Bundesliga level and thereby promoting his creativity and also allowing him freedom to make mistakes, he CAN step into the tracks of an Ilkay Gündögan. He always has the prerequisites. The question remains, whether the fragile construct becomes stable, both physically and mentally, or at least steps back a little like it (Unfortunately) in the case of Marc Stenderas.
We keep our fingers crossed for Erkan and hope for a remarkable career. Since he has gone through all of Germany's national teams, should he, if everything goes in a controlled way, also become a topic for the A national team in the medium term.
