Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s unique style of play

This plot summarizes all the backward key pass a player/position plays. Each bar is a group of passes in one direction. Length of bar = average distance of a group of passes. Color = % of keypasses in a group of passes.

As a left central midfielder in Lazio’s 3-5-2, he attacks like a forward. A significant portion of his key passes is the backward pass from the hold-up play typical for a striker.
