Indeed, Milinkovic-Savic has shown for several years now that he’s perfectly adept at scoring and creating goals in equal measure.

Though the Serbian is a good ball player, his best attribute is probably his physicality as he is tall, strong, good in the air and can stride forward with ease.

Mateja Kezman, an ex-Chelsea player who is the agent of the player, predicted greatness a couple of years ago.

“He has remarkable attributes, and you’ll not find another player in the world with that power, muscular structure and height combined with technique and tactical awareness,” Kezman told Mozzart Sport.

“He has the touch of a Brazilian, and some of the things he does remind me of Zinedine Zidane.

“Milinkovic-Savic is the most influential midfielder in Europe right now, as he can score goals in various ways and has a good head on his shoulders.

“I’ve played with Robben, Lampard and some of the best, and I think Sergej can surpass them if he keeps this up.

“He could soon be a candidate for the Ballon d’Or.”
