This amazing player in yellow, maybe is one of the most underrated players in his position. (Underrated by the world, the press/media and the NT, but not by the fans, because they admire him so much). But he is simply amazing.
Sven Bender, is exactly the same kind of player like Michael Carrick, maybe you aren’t aware he is on the pitch, because he is doing his job in silence but he also puts all his effort in doing a good or excellent job.
Always helping the team winning tackles and aerial duels, fighting for every single ball when it’s necessary.
He’s a fighter, a passionate player, who always puts his heart on the pitch. And not just that. Not for nothing, the fans call him “Iron Manni”, he played yesterday the most of the match with a broken nose, but is not the first time he do something like that. Time ago when this season was starting he played one half with a little injury on his shoulder. Also in one match he catches several number of bruises but he continued playing until the end.
He also could encourage his team mates to win.
Manni is just incredible. I can’t believe he said to Marco to not worry about him because wasn’t the first time he broke his nose.
I played football, and I know it’s not easy playing in pain. But he was so focused in the match, even when he was playing out of his position, as a CB, not in the midfield as usually do.
He is not worry about score to obtain the glory, he is not in the field for fame, he is there because he loves to play. He is there to help his team to do wonderful things and maybe make history too.
He is a great player, a hero and a legend.
