Marou Souaibou Style Of Play As A Winger
Marou Souaibou is known mainly for his offensive and attacking capabilities, trickery, and technical qualities, Marou plays mainly as a left-sided attacking full-back or wing-back, but can also operate as a left-winger, or even in midfield. His flair, grace, touch, and control on the ball, coupled with his speed, agility, and dribbling skills, frequently see him beat opponents in one on one situations with elaborate feints, such as stepovers.
His explosive pace, energy, and clever movement, both on and off the ball, also make him a dangerous threat on counter-attacks; he is capable of penetrating between the opposing defensive lines with attacking runs, or getting up the left flank into good offensive positions from which he can receive the ball often, and provide width for his team, essentially acting as an additional forward.
Moreover, his crossing ability, precise passing, and his eye for the final ball also allow him to function as a secondary playmaker for his team and enable him to link up with other players, create goalscoring chances, and provide assists for teammates. While naturally left-footed, he is also adept with his right foot, which enables him to cut inside from the left-wing, attempt a shot from outside the area, and even score goals.
