Interesting piece. Hope they're all still raving about him by the end of the season.
Tackles won and passing accuracy stats for the last few seasons are impressive too, but amount of chances created show he's playing further back.
Quote from Jonathan Taylor, Middlesboro writer for The Gazette in the article:
"He seems to have raised the game of those around him too. Besic seems to be the aggressor, the organiser, the conductor in Boro's midfield. That's some compliment for a player who's only played four games in this team. Besic looks like a Pulis player. He doesn't try to do anything overly-elaborate with the ball at his feet, but what he does do is recycle possession quickly and with minimal fuss."
Hope he's a level above for the Championship and can give us something when he returns.
